Great news! Just as Dr. Pane suspected, the cytopathology report came back and the little growth Orso has on his neck is just a canine histiocytoma, which is a very common benign tumor that should clear up on its own within a couple of months. I had noticed the growth on Tuesday while I was bathing Orso and I immediately took him to see his vet that same afternoon. Thanks, Dr. Pane, for delivering some good news!
