Results 1-10 of 33 in Cancer or Tumors
 
1. Basal Cell Tumors in Dogs
Basal cell tumors are growths that originate from the epithelial layer of skin. This category of tumor includes both benign and malignant tumors, although most are benign and only occasionally is a malignant tumor diagnosed.
2. Chondrosarcoma (Nasal and Paranasal Sinus) in Dogs
Nasal and paranasal sinus chondrosarcoma are slow growing, progressive, invasive tumors of the nose, nasal cavity and surrounding communicating recesses. These tumors are seen more commonly in dogs than cats.
3. Chondrosarcoma (Tumors of the Larynx and Trachea) in Dogs
Laryngeal and tracheal chondrosarcomas are malignant, slow growing, progressive, invasive tumors of the larynx and trachea. These tumors have no known cause and are extremely rare in small animal veterinary medicine.
4. Fibrosarcoma in Dogs (Bone)
Fibrosarcoma is a type of cancer that arises from fibrous connective tissues of the skull, spine, pelvis and ribs, and is seen most commonly in older male dogs, except for a variety seen in the mouths of younger dogs.
5. Fibrosarcoma in Dogs (Nasal and Paranasal Sinus)
Nasal and paranasal sinus fibrosarcomas are slow growing, progressive, invasive tumors of the nose, nasal cavity and surrounding communicating recesses. They are more common in dogs than in cats and, as with other tumors, the cause is unknown.
6. Gastrinoma
Gastrinoma is a malignant tumor of the pancreas that secretes a hormone called gastrin that stimulates acid secretion in the stomach and in turn causes gastrointestinal ulceration. This cancer is not very common in veterinary medicine.
7. Gastrointestinal Neoplasia in Dogs
Gastrointestinal neoplasia is cancer located anywhere throughout the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including the oral cavity (mouth), esophagus, stomach, small intestines, large intestines and rectum.
8. Hemangiosarcoma in Dogs
Hemangiosarcoma is a malignant cancer of the cells that form blood vessels, and when these tumors rupture, serious internal bleeding can occur. Hemangiosarcoma is considered to be a very aggressive tumor and can spread rapidly to other organs.
9. Hemangiosarcoma of the Bone in Dogs
Hemangiosarcoma is a type of cancer that arises from blood vessels and can occur almost anywhere in the body. Usually when it occurs in bone it is due to metastasis from another site, although rarely, it may actually arise in the bone.
10. Hepatic Neoplasia (Liver Tumors) in Dogs
Hepatic neoplasia is cancer of the liver. Primary liver cancer is most common in pets greater than 10 years of age. There is a slightly increased risk of hepatocellular carcinoma in males compared to females.
