TUMOUR. A preternatural rising or swelling on any part of the body of a horse. Mr. White observes that they are " sometimes caused by bruises or other accidents; at others arising without any visible cause. Inflamed tumours require cooling applications, such as solution of sugar of lead, or G ouland's extract in water; but if they tend to sup puration, the formation of matter should be promoted by fomentation or poultice ; hard indolent tumours, that are neither inflamed nor painful, should have some stimulating liniment or ointment, or even a blister, rubbed on them : some tumours, such as wens, can only be removed by excision.
