Laryngeal Tumors


General information on Laryngeal Tumors

Laryngeal tumors are tumors that are benign, non-cancerous, or malignant, cancerous, in the larynx. Laryngeal tumors are uncommon tumors in dogs. Typically, laryngeal tumors occur in middle-aged dogs to older dogs. Unfortunately, most of these dogs get a malignant tumor. These tumors may be treated in the early stages, but may still be fatal. Sudden death can also occur from respiratory obstruction from the tumor.


Symptoms of Laryngeal Tumors

Some of the symptoms for a laryngeal tumor may be change in voice, loss of the ability to bark, and noisy breathing. A harsh creaking sound called a stridor may also be heard when the dog is breathing.

Treatments for Laryngeal Tumors

The treatment for a laryngeal tumor is to surgically explore and remove as much of the tumor as possible. If the tumor is too large, then there is no cure, but there may be positive results with chemotherapy.
