    Cyst/Growth in Roe doe - any ideas

    I shot a roe doe last night which I've seen over the last 2 - 3 years & which I've never seen with offspring. During the Gralloch I found a fist size growth/cyst in the inner pelvic region attached to the tenderloin & rear haunch area. The growth was cream in colour with very small blood vessels on the surface. The lymph nodes were normal & no other abnormalities were found. Before I buried the carcass I pierced the growth & found it filled with a liquid akin to double cream.
    Can anyone shed light on what this was likely to be. A couple of friends who are very experienced stalkers have indicated it probably is just that - a cyst.
    Thanks

    Your description of the liquid suggests this is an abscess, which may be the cause of the infertility, but it could just be coincidence.

    There is a school of thought that any abscess in a deer, regardless of site, should be treated as TB, especially with liquid pus.
