General information on Lymphoma
Lymphoma is a type of cancer that appears in the lymph nodes and organs such as spleen, liver, and bone marrow. It should be suspected when enlarged lymph nodes are found in the groin, armpit, neck, and chest.
Symptoms of Lymphoma
The symptoms of Lymphoma vary, depending on where the tumor is located. Generally the symptoms include lethargy, poor appetite, weight loss, enlarged liver or spleen. The gastrointestinal form of lymphoma may include vomiting and diarrhea. The chest form often includes shortness of breath and muffled heart sounds. The skin form includes single or multiple itchy red ulcerated lumps in the skin, or mouth.
Treatments for Lymphoma
If the Lymphoma is in a single localized node then it may be cured by the surgical removal of the node. However, if the disease is more widespread, Chemotherapy offers the best chance of remission, but a cure is unlikely.

i just found out today my saint bernard "Nikita" has lymphoma of all her organs. a week ago today she seem to be just fine. looked like she was loosing some weight, but everything about her was the same.untill yesterday she got into the yard next door. when i told her to come back she looked so lost and not sure what to do. i had to carry her home.we went to the vet today. she has 3 lumps on her neck, 2 on her hind legs and seems to have a hard time breathing. it happen so fast. she has been a great dog for the last 8yrs. instead of putting her through all the treatments, i had to make a hard choice to do the right thing. my son and i just got done giving her a bath and she has a t bone steak on the grill. we will get another hour with her and as a family and then say good bye.
