If your dog has been diagnosed with malignant neoplasia - anal sac carcinoma versus perianal carcinoma - is a runny nose a symptom of this condition?

Yes it can be as your pet is just not well. I had to put my little 10 year old Cairn Daisy to sleep and it was heart-breaking, but she had Cushings Disease (one that seems to be rearing it's ugly head more and more in the past 5 years.) As much as most of us love our pets (sometimes as much as children) there comes a time when we have to decide if the treatment for cancer is worse than the disease itself. Dogs, like children ride on our decisions. I had done a lot of research regarding Cushing's Disease before I made the decision to not treat my little Daisy and my husband and I slowed down our pace of life and enjoyed her while we could. We went for long walks, the doggie beach, etc., and had a lot of fun. We were lucky to get almost a year of a happy and contented pain-free little dog and we never regretted our decision. I am not a firm believer (human or pets) that we should always run to our vets or doctors for every shot they decide our pet, child or ourselves needs and because Cushings was on the rise and there was so much cancer in especially dogs, I decided to do some research and was shocked at what I found out: In Canada we only have to get a rabies shot for our pets every 3 years, and in the States it's every year. At one time, the injection site for rabies shots was known to cause a cancerous lump. I verified this with my vet and she said this had been true, but things had improved?????? I also was shocked to find out that the veterinary seminars are questioning giving shots too close together or too many shots at one time (often one shot your dog gets has a whole slew of things in it) because, they found cancer on the rise. If you are interested in this please research in on: www.google.com TYPE IN: Are the shots your vet gives your dog safe? This also goes for cats. My girlfriend's cat had a shot 8 years ago for rabies and the injection site grew a large lump which was cancerous. Thankfully her pet survived, but my view is ... why should we not question what the vets are putting into our beloved pets, when we would hopefully do it for children or ourselves. After you have done your research then walk into your local vet (or the one you deal with) and don't be afraid to nail them with important questions regarding shots given to your pet. They generally don't charge for this service. Although it's the law that the States has to give their pets a rabies shot every year, the other shots should be explained to you as well. If your gut tells you it's not right, then don't do it! I don't! Our dogs are house dogs and don't run around the neighborhood. They get out for walks and go on camping trips with us. The only other pill I will give them is the one for heart worm when we go into the Interior of British Columbia and that really is detrimental to their health. Good luck Marcy

Neoplasia is an abnormal growth of cells. Neoplasia can be benign, where it does not invade other organs or tissues, or it can be malignant, where is can invade other organs or tissues. Cancer, is a malignant neoplasia. Therefore Cancer is a form of neoplasia, but neoplasia is not always Cancer.

A script for a mammogram may say "malignant neoplasia, other" because that is the purpose of the mammogram. The mammogram is a screening test to look for cancer ("malignant neoplasia") of the breast.

Hyperplasia (or "hypergenesis") is a general term referring to the proliferation of cells within an organ or tissue beyond that which is ordinarily seen. Hyperplasia may result in the gross enlargement of an organ and the term is sometimes mixed with benign neoplasia/benign tumor. Neoplasm is an abnormal mass of tissue as a result of neoplasia. Neoplasia is the abnormal proliferation of cells. The growth of the cells exceeds, and is uncoordinated with that of the normal tissues around it. The growth persists in the same excessive manner even after cessation of the stimuli. It usually causes a lump or tumor. Neoplasms may be benign, pre-malignant or malignant.

The word neoplastic is derived from a Greek word. Neo, meaning new, and plasia meaning growth or tissue. Neoplasia means new growth, mainly used in terms when speaking about cancer. Neoplastic Tumor can be either benign or malignant.

Neoplasia refers to the growth of abnormal cells. When those cells form a mass, that mass is called "neoplasm". In neoplasia the cells are produced uncontrollably, meaning, more of them are produced as needed, and they have less time to differentiate (mature) into proper, functional cells. Neoplasm are considered to be either benign (not malignant), or malignant (cancerous) Benign neoplasm: - the cells produced more slowly, - have more time to differentiate, (cells are more able to function) - the proliferation (cell production) might even stop or revert - the formed mass could be enclosed in a capsule, (which could prevent spreading = metastasis) - might only be one mass. Malignant neoplasm: - cells produced rapidly, - have less time to differentiate (cells can't function) - does not have a capsule, - the mass invades the neighbouring tissues - cells can break off, carried away by blood - break off cell stops at other part of the body, where it starts an another mass (secondary tumour). Haematologic cancers (cancers affecting blood cells) do not form a mass, the blood cells would incontrolably proliferate. While the nature of the neoplasm could be differentiated as above, many health professionals do not regard neoplasm as "non-cancerous".

Their first child, Robert Todd Lincoln, lived until the rip-old age of 82! Their second child, Eddie Lincoln, died just before his 4th birthday, most likely of medullary thyroid cancer as part of the genetic cancer syndrome, multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B. William Wallace "Willie" Lincoln died when he was 11 of typhoid fever. Thomas "Tad" Lincoln, died at the age of 18 of medullary thyroid cancer that had spread (metastasized) to his chest cavity, causing a malignant pleural effusion (i.e. the fluid in his chest). This hypothesis, which explains all of Tad's symptoms, derives from the conclusion that Tad and his father both had the genetic cancer syndrome called multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 2B.
