      Last week I took my Lab to the vet. She had a growth on her chest
      which has gotten bigger since we first noticed it this summer. So,
      the vet took a small syringe and drew out some part of the growth.

      put it onto 2 slides and sent them off to be tested (cytology I
      believe is what I was charged for). My husband (the non-medical
      person) took the call from the vet while I was at work. The vet said
      that it was a melanoma, but that until they took it off and had it
      tested, they wouldn’t know if it was malignant or benign.

      What the
      heck did I just pay $112 for!!!!! How can they test it to find out it
      is melanoma, but not know if it is cancerous or not? Anyone run into

      I just spent $450 last week on all her shots, tests, exam,
      heartworm and flea/tick meds and now this!!! Obviously, she is part
      of our family and young (4yo) so we will get this removed, but I just
      wonder why they couldn’t tell me straight up if it was malignant or
      not. Thanks if anyone knows anything.
