Mast cell tumours

I get more calls from veterinarians seeking advice about treatment of animals with mast cell tumours than for any other cancer type.  The disease is different between dogs and cats.  Between individuals there are also differences.  There are different grades, stages, expression of prognostic markers, molecular receptors and their mutations.  The location in the body also has survival and treatment significance and now we have a plethora of treatment options with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, tyrosine kinase receptor inhibitors, glucocorticoids, antihistamines and gastric protectors.  There is a lot of strong opinion and controversy.  It’s a mine field out there!  So let’s try to make some sense of this oncology enigma.
