mast cell tumor

My 7year old dog was diagnosed with a mast cell tumor, it is a lump on her back. The cost of removal is over $900 and I just can't afford it. Right now she seems happy and healthy other then this lump. What will happen if it is not removed?

im not sure what will happen, as im not a vet, but if its not bothering her ask if its ok to leave it. i know theres a miricle cure coming soon, from the rain forests in queensland australia...its a injection that breaks the cancer down and eventually deminishes it all together... ask your vet about any upcoming treatment that may be cheaper.

it will spread locally. Perhaps contact another vet who can offer a better price. The anti-cancer diet is also helpful
