Tumors of the Endocrine Glands in Dogs
After the diagnosis has been established, your veterinarian will schedule the surgery to remove the tumor mass from larynx area. During surgery, maximum care and efforts will be directed towards saving the larynx functions.
Living and Management
After a surgical resection of the tumor mass has been performed, the overall prognosis for most patients is excellent. After a complete resection, a cure is usually achieved in affected patients, as this tumor very seldom metastasizes. However, if a complete resection can not be achieved, you will need to watch your dog for any symptoms of a recurrence, which will require a second round of more aggressive surgery. Again, even with a partial resection, prognosis is generally excellent due to the benign nature of this tumor. Once surgery has been performed successfully, however, no follow-up will be required and your dog may go on to live a normal life.
