Need feedback about Spleen Tumor
My 12 year old Golden/Collie mix had emergency surgery last week to remove her spleen after it burst. The Dr. said she had a tumor in the spleen which was also removed. There was one questionable spot on her liver but the Dr. said that it might have been a benign nodule. He said that the pathology would be able to tell us what was going on. 1 1/2 weeks later, there have been two rounds of pathology, all came back "inconclusive". They are now getting the rest of the spleen from the vet for testing. The said that they feel there are cancerous cells present, but while some characteristics are consistent with Hemangiosarcoma, others are not . My question is, has anyone had experience where there dog had a cancerous tumor of the spleen which was not hemangiosarcoma? If so, what was the outcome? Any information will be appreciated.
