He started getting a bump in his mouth, bottom front. I took him to the doctor, they did a test and it came up as a spindle cell tumor. My main doctor recommended surgery to remove it with part of the jaw, the surgeon said it along with part of his jaw should be removed and the oncologist said the same. Its nasty looking, its puling his teeth apart and looks like something that can simply be removed without taking a chunk of his jaw out but apparently they say its in the jaw. I am getting a biopsy done Tuesday to see the specific kind of cancer it is and some other tests done but the doctors say part of the jaw must get removed. I am torn!! They say that I can try some chemotherapy but the odds of that being successful are so small. It sounds a little selfish of me to not want part of his jaw removed BUT if this truly is the only way to save his life I'll do it. He's acting completely normal, normal energy, appetite and everything except this dam bump in his mouth. I don't want to cut a section of jaw out. I will do anything to treat this if there were other methods available, but removing part of the jaw seems to be my only option. Anyone experience this and have you heard of any kind of treatments besides the removal of a piece of the jaw? The tumor itself must get removed, thats fine but if theres anything else I can do to prevent the jaw part I'd do. Money is no object, my dog is like my child and I'll do whatever it takes to make sure he's healthy. This is such a tough time for me!
