Mass / Tumor Removal

While lumps and bumps are more common in older dogs, younger dogs can get them too. Many lumps and bumps are benign (non-cancerous), but some of them can be malignant (cancerous). The older your dog is, the higher their chance of getting malignant lumps. The good news is that early detection and treatment of cancerous lumps can increase the chances of a cure.

Because of the many variables that may be encountered when assessing mass removals such as size and location, accurate price quotes will be provided on a case by case basis.
