The proper course of treatment is to surgically remove the tumor. The removal of the tumor and infected lymph nodes can prolong an animal's life. However, the tumor's removal is not a cure. Radiation is also used to help with locally recurring tumors.
After the tumor is removed, it is advised to continue monitoring the animal through physical examinations, X-rays, ultrasounds, and blood work. Calcium and kidney tests also work in monitoring the disease and its potential recurrence. The overall prognosis for the disease is poor, although surgery can substantially improve the opportunity for recovery.
Due to its nature, there is currently no way to prevent the disease.
