Skin Cancer (Mucocutaneous Plasmacytoma) in Dogs

Treatment

 

If the tumor has become invasive, surgery is typically recommended to excise the tumor and surrounding tissue. Radiotherapy is also conducted in some dogs in order to destroy the neoplastic tissue.

 

Living and Management

 

Fortunately, most dogs respond well to surgery and radiotherapy, and overall prognosis is excellent with treatment.
