Veterinary Tumors

Parathyroid Tumors, Canine

Parathyroid carcinomas account for less than 2% of parathyroid tumors in dogs. They are locally invasive and have a low likelihood of metastasizing. Approximately 20-30% of dogs will develop metastatic disease at some point. The most common locations for tumor spread are lungs and regional lymph nodes. The tumor may recur locally and may involve both of the parathyroid glands. Many of these tumors are functional, resulting in hypercalcemia. Surgical removal is the recommended treatment if possible.
