From the National Canine Cancer Foundation:
Extranodal lymphoma- It is the rarest among all lymphomas and can affect areas like the breast tissue, cutaneous tissue (skin), hepatic tissue (liver), ocular or orbital tissue (eyes), osteo tissue (bone) and oral tissue (mouth). Patients with extranodal lymphoma show degeneration of the organs involved (0rganomegaly).
Prognosis- Extranodal forms of lymphoma has not been thoroughly investigated with respect to the prognosis.
So, Dixie's cancer is as unique as she is...
