I have a pure white cat. He is 4 years old. He loves the out doors and from the first time he went out, on a sunny day, he has had sun block applied to his ears to protect them. This morning however, I discovered a small black crust on the side of his ear. I rubbed it off, applied his sun block liberally and he went outside. I will keep a close eye on his ear to see if it returns.What are the odds on this being the first signs of Cancer..am I over worrying?

Ah, one more hazard for outdoor cats!

Skin cancer often starts this way; do keep a close eye on it. If it does not heal, or gets bigger, please have your vet check him immediately! If it's caught early, surgery might be able to stop it.

Cheers,
