Technically he's my sister's dog but we "share" him. He's going in tomorrow to have a couple lumps removed, which are hopefully benign but could be mast cell tumors. He's not even 4 and I don't think I can handle another dog with cancer.



Much appreciated!

Lentil put up a new tibetan prayer flag for you guys, and it's really really really windy.

My good thoughts/vibes are with you! I'm TOTALLY in the same boat right now.. my dog has little lumps all over her body, so the vet says it's pointless to try to remove them. They could become cancerous at anytime, he says.



My hopes are their benign, Wolfie! For the both of us!

Thanks everyone. They sent the three of them off, though two of them they don't think are anything serious. So I'm still worried about the one but that's better than worrying about three. I should post a pic of him looking all pathetic in his bandage and e-collar, but I only have my work pc atm and don't want to upload pics onto it. Don't think they'd like that for one thing.

MCT's are rare in younger dogs, more likely a histioctoma. Good luck anyway and I wish him a speedy recovery. Keep us posted as to the results.

Thank you, cheekywhiskers, it's nice to have that reassurance from another vet. I made the mistake of spending half the weekend researching MCTs on line and of course found people with younger dogs that had MCTs. But his vet said the same thing you did, that in a younger dog it could be a histiocytoma. He's also half weimeraner and they're a breed at risk for MCT. I really should know better than to google crap like that. I had myself convinced before the surgery that all three of them would be MCTs since I'd read that having multiple is, of course, much worse than having one. The other two were under the skin so I couldn't compare them. So it was a relief to hear she thought the other two looked like benign cysts when they were removed.

My labby had that when he was little, that was not so bad at all.
