Just a few months ago we were told that Danny had cancer. Now, we have been told that Cooper has cancer - Thyroid Carcinoma to be exact.
The vet wants to immediately remove the mass in Cooper's neck, so he will have surgery tomorrow (Tues).
Once the mass is removed it will be biopsied. If the makeup of the tumor is known, we can better gauge how to treat it.
Thyroid carcinoma spreads quickly to the lungs, so Cooper will also have an x-ray to see if the cancer has metastasized there. There is no hope if the cancer is in his lungs.
I am stunned, shocked and unprepared to once again battle this disease.
