Thank you, Nanno.  Just an fyi...  Thymomas are the most common type of tumor in goats.  Ones like Cary had (i.e., benign encapsulated ventral cervical) can be surgically removed and have good survival rates. However, given his age and how poorly he did with the drain last year we opted to let him live it out.  As large as it was, it didn't seem to bother him.  He was playing and rough-housing right up until the last 3 days.  <3
