Canine Tumors - Msboja - 08-10-2012 02:45 PM

Hi James
I have contacted you before regarding how canines react to some herbs and I know you haven't done much research in that area. I have just received some news from my vet and havent' begun researching yet and I figured I would ask here first and any information would be of great help. Im looking to start my dog on some of your antiviral/ tumor recommendations. If there is anything on the list that you know off hand that would have adverse effects to my dog, any information would be greatly appreciated.
Chapparal, Pau'DArco, Andrographis, Poke Root, Myrrh, Nettles, Juniper, Suma, Tumeric, Ginger, Red Clover Blossoms, Dulse, Licorice Root, Chaga, Turkey Tail.

I have posted some lab work results if you have any comments please.

SOURCE/HISTORY
1) Dermal/skin mass and (2) Right scrotal mass.
MICROSCOPIC
DESCRIPTION 1) Dermal/skin mass: Four submitted smears are examined and are of moderate to high nucleated cellularity. Cells consist primarily of a population of rounded noncohesive discrete cells . The round cells have a small amount of deeply basophilic cytoplasm. Nuclei are irregularly rounded to ovoid and display a stippled chromatin pattern.
Occasional cells are binucleate or multinucleated. Nucleoli are not
generally discernible. Anisocytosis and anisokaryosis is moderate.
These cells lie in a light to moderate blood, associated leukocyte,
and pale basophilic tissue fluid background. No organisms or
significant neutrophilic inflammatory or hypersensitivity response is
observed.
2) Right scrotal mass: Two submitted smears are examined and are of
low to moderately high nucleated cellularity. Cells consist primarily
of well granulated mast cells, present individually and in variably
sized clusters/aggregates, with scattered admixed eosinophils and few
plump dysplastic spindle cells, and admixed eosinophils. These cells
lie in a light to moderate blood, associated leukocyte, and pale
eosinophilic tissue fluid background. Scattered free mast cell
granules are noted. The mast cells display mild anisocytosis and
anisokaryosis. No organisms or significant neutrophilic inflammatory
response is observed.
CYTOLOGICAL
INTERPRETATION 1) Dermal/skin mass: Round cell tumor most compatible with plasma cell tumor.
2) Right scrotal mass: Mast cell tumor.
COMMENTS
1) Dermal/skin mass: This round cell population displayed morphologic characteristics of an anaplastic plasma cell tumor. Urge excisional biopsy as initial therapeutic, prognostic and definite diagnostic
measure.
2) Right scrotal mass: No organisms or significant neutrophilic
inflammatory response was observed. Although histopathology would be
required for grading, all mast cell tumors are potentially malignant.
Advise wide and deep (if possible) excisional biopsy.

These are fine, but be careful with the poke root. In fact, it would be best to leave that one out since it is not combined with amla, which woks with it.

Other than that I do not see any problems.

Being that the tumor sounds superficial another possible option that can be used in conjunction is to get a euphorbia from the cacti/succulent section of the plant nursery. Nick the plant and it will exude a white latex. The latex can be applied to the tumor and left on. After about 3 days remove the scab that should have formed. Peel it off and more latex would be applied. The process is continued to gradually eat away the tumor.

Or if you have access to an ozone generator and a glass syringe and know how to do injections the tumor can be directly injected with ozone to destroy the tumor faster.
