 Painted turtles native to the area and needs a vet

Hello everyone! I am new here but I’ve had my 2 painted turtles for 2 years . They are about 5 inches and the one has a huge tumor type lesion that kept getting bigger on its neck. I live in New York State (upstate) and need to take it to a vet but I heard that if I do they can take my turtle away from me because it is a native species. Is this true? How would I go about finding out ? I guess I could just call but I didn’t think they would outright tell me. Please let me know if anyone has any info about this. Thanks!!!!!!

I do not know if they can take it away from you but if you don’t take the turtle it will burst and kill the turtle.
