Skin Tumors in Dogs

If you notice a hard lump on your dog's skin, point it out to your vet as soon as possible. Dogs occasionally develop cancerous tumors in their skin.


The only way to confirm a diagnosis of cancer is to biopsy the tumor. If the lump is small enough your veterinarian may recommend removing it entirely.


This can yield a diagnosis and treatment with a single procedure. For tumors that have not spread this may be the only treatment needed.

Cost to Treat: $2,000 to $10,000
