Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today! Please give me a few moments to type my response to your question!
So sorry that Cane has this diagnosis. Unfortunately your statement ends at "the report states:" and there is no attached report. Can you please retype or attach the diagnosis? How large is this mass? Is it attached to the chin/ bone or just on the skin? Did it come on rapidly?
I don't have the information on what the report states, the statement ends there. Without having the pathology report it is not possible for me to guide you on treatment or prognosis. I just have that it is 2 tumors on his chin
In order to grade a cancer the lump must be removed for histopathology which is cuts of the mass versus an aspiration which is a poke with a needle and getting a minimal sample. Grading is based on actual evaluation of the mass, aspiration of any lymph nodes in the area (throatlatch) and chest x-rays
Your veterinary clinic should be able to email you the report and if they can (the vet doesn't have to be involved) I am happy to review it and discuss things further. I understand how frustrating it can be in the dark and I feel for you not having the answers for another two days...
