I'm ***** *****. My 2 year old Havanese likely has lymphoma.

Customer Question

Hi, I'm ***** *****. My 2 year old Havanese likely has lymphoma.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: 2 nodules appeared just last week on her chest/shoulder area. I know her body well from daily brushing so the growth must have been very rapid. My vet aspirated and told me she saw high growth keratin cells on the slide. We had surgery and removed the two nodules and are waiting for biopsy from lab of the tumors that were removed.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dog Veterinarians generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Why do you think she has lymphoma (a tumor caused by lymphocytes not "keratin cells")?

Has the biopsy come back?

Did you have a specific question about your situation (as I only see a history)?
