    Canine Thyroid Tumors (warning graphic photos.)

    A good friend is a Vet and works at the North West Nuclear Medicine Hospital for Animals. They posted an interesting article on Canine Thyroid Cancer that I thought some may find interesting. There are graphic photos. And please remember that just because your dog has hypothyroidism that does not mean they have thyroid cancer......

    Gyp had Thyroid cancer, and he isn't hypothyroid. His tumor was really mobile, and it was removed easily.

    I know in humans, thyroid cancer tends to be an easier one to treat and slow to spread. I had a few suspect areas in my thyroid that the doctors started going over the procedures and letting me know about it, but turned out all my spots are non-cancerous (but they monitor them regularly).
