Melon the hooman here. Thanks everyone for their good wishes.
Cocoa may not have made it clear that he has a fairly aggressive tumour, not a benign one.
This is what it looks like:
|It's 13mm in diameter.|
Here he is tonight:

P.S. Cocoa's still doing fine, but I myself have been struggling with caring for him. It's something I have struggled with for a while, linked to my depression and anxiety I think, and I struggle a lot with guilt that my family seems to do most of his care these days. That's for another blog though - I have been meaning to set up a sub-page or a completely separate blog for me so as not to take up Cocoa's screen-time!
