    DefaultMast cell tumour info

    Please can someone tell me about mast cell tumours. I noticed that Bailey had an oozing sore type thing on his cheek/lip. We took him to the Vets Wednesday night and she looked at it and said it could be dermatitis and gave us some steroid cream. She then went on to talk about mast cell tumours and to be honest since I looked on the web I am freaking out. Bailey is nearly 9 and generally in very good health. The vet said if the area doesn't improve/clear up to take him back next week

    Make sure you do take him back next week, and insist on a needle aspiration on the spot. My experience though, is that MCT's are oozy. My Frankie had one that looked like a skin tag. They removed it (with excellent margins) within a week of us finding it, and it came back as the "good grade" (I forget which one). Five years later he's perfectly fine.

    Prayers that Bailey does NOT have an MCT.

    My Shanny is a MCT survivor. So was my Murphy and Robin. Caught early and the dog usually has a very good chance of survival. Make sure you follow up next week and if there is any doubt at all, have it taken off with the taking of aggressive margins.

    i had a boy with mct. it was not oozy but that doesnt mean they cant be.
    the vet needs to aspirate, if possible and get it off and out with clean margins.
    mct doesnt have to be a death sentence. labs are prone and some get many. so long as it's not systemic mc disease.
