Customer Question
He has a mass...

He has a mass near the end of the stomach near the duodenum. What sort of growths occur there and are they cancer.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name and age?

Max 8 years old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Max?
