Signs of Dog Lymph Node Cancer

Updated: August 5th, 2019

Many find a bump or a lump on their canine companion at home.  The first question is usually, “what is this?” Sometimes the second question is, “Is it a gland or a lymph node?”

FREE Dog Cancer Diet - Dog Cancer Blog

These are good questions.  The reason is that glands, or lymph nodes, become swollen for different reasons.  Like in people, infection can do it.  Many recall the phrase “swollen glands” from childhood illness like strep throat or a bad upper respiratory infection.

However, there are other causes of swollen lymph nodes that need attention.  One of these is cancer of the lymphatic system, called lymphosarcoma, or lymphoma.

Like an infection, this cancer may cause swollen lymph nodes.  But, instead of a normal response to an infection, this is an abnormal condition.  There is no infection but the lymph nodes are swollen.  In this case, the reason for the size increase is cancer cells.

So, where are the lymph nodes in dogs that one can feel at home?

There are several areas that can be checked:

  • Under the lower jaw where the jaw connects with the neck area
  • In front of the shoulder area
  • In the hamstring area (back of the thigh)
  • In the armpit
  • In the groin area where the inner thigh connects with the abdominal region

If you find a large swelling in this area, bring your dog in to the vet without delay.  The swelling can be tested in many cases with a simple procedure called a fine needle aspirate.  This takes only a few minutes and is quite strait-forward.

Dog Cancer Survival Guide - Dog Cancer Blog

Using this procedure, it is simple in most cases to determine if their are cancerous cells in the lymph node.

This is one of the Hard to Cure cancers discussed in The Dog Cancer Survival Guide.  One of the reasons that lymphosarcoma is hard to cure is that it cannot be removed with surgery.

This cancer starts in the circulation, in a special portion of the circulation called the lymphatic system.  The lymphatics are small vessels that deliver a fluid called lymph throughout the body.  Lymph contains white blood cells, which most commonly serve to fight infection. These cells are called lymphocytes.

The lymph fluid is filtered in glands called lymph nodes.

When a dog has lymphosarcoma, it means that the normal cells in the lymphatic system, the lymphocytes, have become cancerous.

These cells flow throughout the body just like normal lymphocytes.

For this reason, we cannot remove them surgically.  They are mobile when they become cancer cells, and we cannot target a single area to remove them since they are in motion.

When the numbers of cancerous lymphocytes increase, they form swellings. One of the most common areas that these cancer cells accumulate are in the normal lymph nodes themselves, increasing the size of these normal structures.

The Full Spectrum approach to dealing with dog cancer that I use for my patients includes the following steps:

  1. Diet change (click on the Dog Cancer Diet download above for a detailed document)
  2. Chemotherapy (best done under the supervision of an oncologist)
  3. Apocaps, the supplement I designed for my patients
  4. Other supplements or herbs (discussed in the Guide)
  5. Reduction of stress, increase social activity, build self esteem (these have real life, documented impact in human cancer survival times)
  6. Touch therapies (gentle massage, T-Touch, etc)
  7. Acupuncture for discomfort when appropriate
  8. Insure at least 8-9 hours of sleep in total darkness
  9. Consideration of homeopathy by a qualified veterinary practitioner
  10. Improve life quality by defining your dog’s Joys in Life and increasing them

This is a rough outline of how to use many different steps, each that gives us an edge in fighting dog cancer. Start from the top and work your way down.  There are many blog posts in this site that discuss the bulk of these steps (use the search bar on the right of this page above the picture of the hand holding the capsule).


When they are all used at the same time, real increases in life quality and lifespan can result.

    Our 13 year old lab mix we adopted just over a year ago was euthanized earlier today. In the beginning of October, he began to have some breathing sounds that were different than normal. I also noticed that the lymph nodes in his neck were swollen. Oct 15th we took him in and the vet said cancer was very unlikely as both nodes were enlarged. We were sent home with Carprofin and his breathing became more labored and he would make choking/gagging and hacking sounds when and after eating and drinking. While laying down, his breathing sounded like a bad snore, yet he was wide awake.

    Bert still enjoyed his walks and playtime with doggie friends of all ages, but neither he nor I slept well due to the loud and erratic breathing and his inability to get comfortable, moving from his bed to the floor. He also began laying in the yard much more, while temps were in the 30’s and he would fall asleep in the grass.

    Nov. 1st I brought him back to the vet as the breathing was no longer acceptable and clearly something was happening. Bert had weighed 73 pounds on Oct. 15th and was now 3lbs less on Nov. 1st. Fine needle aspirations were priority rushed to the lab my vet uses, for a hefty fee and the next business day, Monday Nov. 4th, the vet called to say that the lab could not determine as there was too much blood and not enough lymphatic cells. So, another round of samples were taken, for another hefty fee as the lab was unwilling to give us a price break and the vet would not give me the name or number of the lab. There was also an upcharge to get a description of the findings, a further insult to injury.

    This morning, after a night of no sleep and a dog that was clearly having issues breathing and still no definitive results, I made the decision to euthanize as my fear was that he could suffocate or the like in the evening or weekend when the nearest vet to provide assistance was 25 miles away or that Bert would go into distress while we were away from home.

    At 2:15 this afternoon I said a tearful goodbye, with one last check as the status of the test results which were listed as still in progress. The vet, not our usual one at the office felt both lymph nodes and looked at me and said “you made the best decision, I am pretty sure that it is a cancer in the lymph nodes.”

    We will await the results and cherish our memories of sweet Bert. We will also advocate for more options to diagnosing cancers, better sample collections and more compassionate lab companies (leadership and employees).

      Hey Caroline,

      Thanks for writing. As Dr. Dressler writes in the Dog Cancer Survival Guide, there are a number of things that you can do to help your dog with cancer– Conventional Treatments (Surgery, chemo, radiation), Nutraceuticals, Immune System Boosters and anti-metastatics, diet, and brain chemistry modifications. This is what Dr. D calls the Full Spectrum Approach 🙂

    Hi, my 2 year old Golden Retriever Sammy started vomiting, diorrhea, loss of appetite and fluids and lost 4 kgs quickly. I took him to vet and he got put on a drip for fluids and antibiotics. By the Saturdah he wasn’t better so vet opened him up expecting to find his stomache turned in on itself or obstruction but the vet found 2 extremely enlarged lymph nodes in stomache (10x or more the normal size). The vet said it could be caused from infection (that Sammy doesn’t appear to have) or possibly lymphoma. He took a biopsy and sent it away so we are just waiting for results but I’m wondering if anyone has had something similar happen and what it could be caused from? I am hoping, praying and wishing that my boy does not have lymphoma. Appreciate any information/advise 🙂 Thank you

    Hi! I have a Pomeranian that we think is about 10 ish years old. About a week ago she was sick and layed in bed for almost 4 days. She’s fine now but there is one HUGE lump in front of her throat. Since I have been gone for 3 year my family said that happened when I was gone but went away eventually. It’s been almost a week and the lump is still there. She is, however, in no pain or discomfort at all from it. I will be taking her to the vet eventually but before I do any suggestions?

  7. Susan Kazara Harper on June 16, 2015 at 7:37 pm

    Ann, I recommend taking the collar or chain off if you can, as there are lymph node problems in that area. I’ll bet Pearl wouldn’t have any problem without them. It’s up to her whether these are her precious end days now or not, but it sounds as if you’re working with your vet to get all the information you can. Ger her nutrition as optimal as possible, following the Dog Cancer Diet (from the bok, or www/dogcancerdiet.com) so she has some good fuel in her body to help her fight. If she has difficulty breathing it can be really tough on both of you. Talk with her, ask her what she wants and she will tell you in your heart. Good luck, and cuddles to that wonderful girl.

  8. Ann Corbett on June 6, 2015 at 10:18 am

    My dog Pearl is 13, she has cancer in the lymph nodes, an xray was done today, her breathing was heavier, the vets said she was not getting enough air, one side of xrays all white, by the heart, she was put on prednisone, and her breathing is normal again. Vet was not sure if it was fluid or something else. Are these her final days! She had what seems like a bit of a gage at times, like when chain is pulled wrong on them. There are lumps under her neck and all over, the vet said that she could not hear the breathing, that is why she took the xray,

    Hello Will,
    I’m sorry about the diagnosis; I know how hard it is. I hope you’ve read through all the blog posts about lymphoma. It’s a lousy diagnosis, but it’s still considered to be one of the most treatable of the canine cancers. There is a Golden in Hong Kong who has been thriving now for about three years since his lymphoma diagnosis. There is so much you can do. Your girl may ‘seem’ scared simply because of the emotions and stress, coupled with the nose cleaning. Let’s face it, no dogs likes us messing in that area really. Please don’t mix medications, as you mentioned in your first post. Do you have a vet oncologist? Can you communicate well with your vet? Besides the blog, I think the Dog Cancer Survival Guide book would help you a lot, and there is an entire chapter on lymphoma. You can get it in any version at http://www.dogcancerbook.com. One of the hardest things to do when we’re reeling from a cancer diagnosis, is to focus on joy every day with your dog. Your girl only knows today, how she feels and how you feel to her. You can turn the tide in amazing ways when you put on your armor and tell her you’re in it together, whatever happens. Then play ball, go for a walk, laugh with her, lie on the floor and get silly. It’s sometimes the best medicine possible and there are no contraindications. Please do consider the book, look at all the lymphoma blogs, and get her nutrition optimized with the Dog Cancer Diet. Good luck to you both Will.

    Will, I’m sorry you haven’t had a reply before this.. .we are so backed up and doing our best. What is the situation with your dog now? Any change?

    • Will on March 3, 2015 at 9:22 am

      HI Susan thank you for the reply it means a lot. She had a biopsy which confirmed Lymphoma. It has broke my heart in more ways than one. I have her on a steroid drug to ease the suffering until i have to make the judgment. I had her on benadryl and that seemed to help before. She has been sneezing, crusty nose, lethargic and really scared of me for some reason (very uncharacteristic). I have cleaned her nose up and i leave her to rest on her medication. I keep praying that there must be some kind of a mistake but each day my hopes are fading. I don’t know how on earth i could ever prepare myself for what i know is coming. Its the hardest thing i have been through.

  11. Will on January 29, 2015 at 5:12 pm

    Hello, I am desperate for some advice from any one. My Jack Russell dog developed lumps in her throat over night about 2 weeks ago. She has had two trips to the vets who have prescribed anti-inflammatory medication. The first time she went the vet said her lymph nodes were slightly raised, the second time (a week later)the vet said that her lymph nodes had all gone down, except in the throat. Her throat glands are still swollen but not as much as they were two weeks ago. My question is, should i put her on allergy medication together with Meloxicam? I feel that i shouldn’t mix medication without advice.. However, i feel that we are still far from a positive diagnosis. Could you please give me a straight answer as to what you think this is as my vets are not being very proactive and keep putting off the aspirate and various tests i would prefer them to carry out. Many thanks to you.

  12. Annie on November 16, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    My miniature schnauzer developed over night swelling under the chin, throat area, and on both sides of the jaw, we went to vet immediately, he had difficulty swallowing, could not bark, very inactive, all blood work was normal, no fever, he was put on 2.5 prednisone every 12 hours, 1/2 Benadryl every 12 hours, and 1/4 pepsid daily a lot of the swelling has gone down, except one area under jaw, he is still not barking, and a little trouble swallowing, not playing, which is very unusual we started Friday with the above, it is Sunday, I am a wreck and am taking him back tomorrow, have you ever heard of anything like this?

  13. Susan Kazara Harper on October 13, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    Hi Steph,
    OK, hold on, bless your heart. And bless you for taking care of your friend’s dog while he’s deployed. Before you and his owner dive into despair, it is definitely worth getting a proper biopsy. Many vets have a lot of experience with cancer, and feel confident giving a diagnosis by just feeling. But Steph, they’re all human, and can make mistakes. They can be wrong. Stating a sentence of 3-6 months without a confirmed biopsy … that dog is not a statistic. There is so much you can do to help, through good, real nutrition (www.dogcancerdiet.com) and many other methods. But truly, you don’t know what you’re dealing with without the results of a biopsy which can tell you the stage of cancer (if it is cancer), and further you need to know whether it has metastasized. Then come questions about “what to expect”, “how to help” etc. But only when you know for sure. I know you don’t want to give horrible news until you have it confirmed. Good luck!

    • Catherine on June 22, 2015 at 12:30 pm

      This is a really great response. Thank you x

  14. Steph on October 11, 2014 at 12:57 pm

    Thank you for this article! I am dog sitting for a very good gtiend of my husband who is in Afghanistan. We have had the dog for going on 6 years. I found two lumps under his jaw this morning and was able to get him in today. The Dr. told me all of his lymphnodes are enlarged, indicating cancer. She said he’s got about 3-6 months, without giving many details. This article helped explain more about what he has and what I can tell his owner.

      My pit bull Toby passed away at the young age of 9 because he had lymphoma. The first sign of trouble was a small, brown growth on the outside of his leg that was more than likely cancer. It reminded me of a mole the size of a pinky nail. We didn’t mess with because it didn’t change in size,color,or texture. Probably 1.5-2yrs later I noticed his hind legs had to knots below the knees the size of a gumball or rubber ball out of those 25¢ machines. I was telling my sister-in-law about them and she suggested I put flaxseed oil directly on the growth & put a spoonful of it in his food everyday. Her parents had a boxer, Molly, they treated two growths with and they fell off! Flaxseed oil is great for humans & animals so there was no risk in trying it. Sho told me to watch his lymph nodes under the neck, if they swell take him to the vet. So about a year later his lymph nodes under the jaw swelled to the size of a tennis ball cut in halves. My cousin is our Vet so, on my birthday 5-25-10, off to Dr. Amy lou’s zoo(we’ve called her Amy Lou since I can remember so I had zoo now, it’s Dr. Amy Allen Graves of LVH) we went. She told me it was lymphoma, he was well into the late stages, treatment would only take him faster. She said he probably had 6-8wks 8 if I was lucky. She said I’d know when it was time to bring him. I was so scared I wouldn’t know. The what if’s both ways tortured me the 1st wk but thankfully faded away. I just loved him, let him do whatever he wanted because he would have let me. 9 wks later the power was knocked out by a bad storm. It was the last wk of July in NC so it was miserablely hot & eerily silent. He started walking around the coffee table & he was having a hard time breathing. It was awful. He’d lay down for a couple minutes then he’d pace some more. The power was off 1hr but for him it was probably more like a year, an eternity for me. Obviously it was time. I knew he was ready, I couldn’t let my 1st child suffer any longer. I got him & his brother my birthday 5/25/01. Four days later they both were admitted to the hospital by my cousin for parvo. His brother didn’t come home but Toby did. Dr Amy Lou & Toby fought parvo & won. So one 7/29/2011 she released him from his cancer ridden body. I felt his energy surge thru my body. His spirit touched every nerve ending in my body & off to Heaven he went. God loves having animals on hand for all the children taken too soon. He was my heart and still is. I have a lot of regrets but opting to not treat w/chemotherapy or radiation is not one of them. For my family(brothers,parents, and husband ) it’s quality not quantity. and treatment only pays off for when the animal is diagnosed early & even then there’s no cure. Lymphoma is fatal.

  15. Susan Kazara Harper on September 22, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    How did the surgery go? Remember, even if you get a positive diagnosis, there is so much you can still do. It’s wonderful that he’s feeling great. Strong and happy make it so much better to start fighting back. Go right back to nutrition (www.dogcancerdiet.com) so he has the best foods possible … not only what to feed, but what NOT to feed, and work with your vet to put together the best protocol you can. If you haven’t already, please take a look at and consider Apocaps (www.apocaps.com) to add to your arsenal. Good luck!

    My 4 year old BMD has a bunch of swollen lymph nodes. His tick titer was negative. He had a FNA on several of the nodes. It came back as reactive adeno. However, because he has no symptoms of infection, the pathologist and vet believe him to have lymphoma. He is now scheduled to have a lymph node removed. He is acting totally normal. Eating, playing, etc. If it’s lymohoma, I hope these are good signs that he will be receptive to chemo. I feel upset because I brought him in 3 weeks ago when I felt his axillary node swollen. I am a very well versed Berner owner and know to bring them in over any lump or bump. I also know to ask the vet to put mixed breed on his info vs BMD, but my vet refused to do this. I am devastated. My dog just got his Championship, obedience and draft titles and he is an amazing dog whom I love way too much and do not want to lose. Especially at 4. I know this is a risk with Berners.

    We are putting him on doxy before the lymph node removal Friday. I have to feel like we are doing something while waiting. I’m fully prepared for a lymphoma diagnosis, but hoping it’s not (of ciurse).

    If anyone has any words of advice, please post.

    My dogs back right leg is swollen I have taken him to tufts veterinary and feel like I get no real answers they did a asparatis and came back not cancerious they also did a lympe node came back inclusive. Feel like I go through the same thing with tufts and never any answers it’s give him sumatrine. And come back in 7-10 days

    • Susan Kazara Harper on August 20, 2014 at 1:58 pm

      Brady, You sound frustrated, but remember it’s your right to go to another vet and/or ask to be referred for a second opinion. You know your dog better than anyone, and you are responsible for his health. Don’t worry. Vets should understand your need to get clarity. Make some calls or ask your friends if they have a vet they feel good about. Hopefully you’ll get “all clear” results, but you’ll never know until you ask. Waiting won’t improve anything. Get moving! Good luck.

    Thank You 4 this wonderfully informative article, I found it very, very easy 2 understand, everything being in “English” (everyday language) Even tho our Vet had explained it 2 us, this is nice, 2 read when my grief has somewhat accepted the shock of the devastating diagnosis. It’ll also b nice 2 reread it again, & use it 4 a learning tool, while trying 2 explain some of the Cancer symptoms 2 others. Thank U again, & also 4 info about “blog” & your other topics. Bless U 4 your dedication 2 this devastating & ever increasing disease.

  19. Lightning strikes twice:( on April 22, 2013 at 7:53 am

    Hello Doctor, I guess I should start by telling you that I have lost my first baby(a boxer named Jessa) to lymphosarcoma 4 years ago. Which is when my husband and I decided to get another boxer(because we love their love), Leo. We went to our wonderful vet and we really believed this time it was just an infection, but after 2 weeks of being better he took a turn for the worse and now the lymph nodes are swollen:( One question is, could the infection could have come back? I did notice that when he started to eat solids again I gave him the food he had been eating prior to illness. I have now thrown it away and am feeding him a pureed mix of potatoes, chicken and milk through a 60cc syringe. So the other question is, could it be food related-Salmonella possibly?

    • Dr. Demian Dressler on April 24, 2013 at 12:30 pm

      Dear Lightening
      sorry to hear this news 🙁
      the short story is this: if the treatment for infection is not resolving the swollen lymph nodes you should discuss with your vet getting them tested with at least a fine needle aspirate to see if there are any cancer cells in the nodes. Earlier is better…
      I hope this helps

  20. Mrs Marcia Bridges on February 6, 2013 at 4:11 am

    My 10yr old male boxer dog (Buster) as a swollen jaw /neck to the right hand side, had him to the vets they said infection or lymph node cancer, he has had injections to reduce swelling and take down his temperature, and i have to take him back tomorrow to see if there is any change,if there is not they want to take him in and do a biopsy and check for anything else ,im petrified it is cancer,it has come on in a day the swelling, but he as been a little bit off it a few days, but still eating and playing he is a very fit and healthy boy and i dont know what to do for the best, ive heard tales of allsorts of things to do with missed leading vets and treatments any one got any true helpful advice ,would be very grateful as he means the world to us.xmarcia.x.

    My dog Tia, after almost a year of mis diagnosis was diagnosed with Lymphoma today. One that will kill her any day from now. All the symptoms was their, but the vets aren’t that experienced i guess.

  23. Sheila T. Scott on October 27, 2012 at 2:01 am

    Hoping that your newsletter will give me more insights into fighting canine cancer. My 11 yr. old Golden Retriever is fighting Lymphoma diagnosed 8/2/12. Since I changed her diet and put her on supplements, also Prednisone 20 mg. every 3 days. she has been doing incredibly well, however this morning I found a lump where the lymph node is located on the fattly part of her hind leg close to the tail.
    I’m not sure what else I can do at this point but still have hope.

  24. Kathleen on May 11, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Dr Dressler,

    Thank you for your book. In relation to dog foods I wondered about Blue Buffalo, my German Shorthaired Pointer has lumps…thankfully one tested and not cancerous. Others have shown up but she seems fine. I have her on the grain free formulas and moving towards cooking for her. She is going to be 11 in June.

    I have read much information on line about Turmeric/Curcumin success and I believe that along with Doug Kaufmann’s info on Know the Cause that cancer is quite simply fungus in the body. He says it looks the same under a scope and acts the same and changing diet as well as using antifungals have helped many who watch him. Turmeric is also a powerful antifungal…perhaps the reason you have seen tumors shrink as well. Mocha will be on this soon.

    I just started her on Ionic/ph balanced water, cellfood, my Usana Essentials supplements which several Vets use now too. She has been on Omega 3’s, Ubiquinone (CoQ10) and I’ve also added Transfer Factor Plus since it clearly elevated the killer T cells. I will report back and any thoughts from you are welcomed. I know from Dr Christopher’s website that Lobelia/Mullein for glands is excellent in addressing lymph issues and more so I’m ordering it as well.

    I found it interesting to read online about some dogs in the UK living to 26 or older after being fed a vegetarian diet their whole life….your thoughts? There is a new Vegetarian dog food out.

    Dr Dressler:

    A week ago I left a question for you and I can not find it or an answer on the blog. It’s possible I’m looking in the wrong places but, please could you direct me or tell me the answer asap. I have the Boxer Scarlet and everyday I let go by I feel as though I am letting her down as her care taker. I appreciate all that you do for me as well as for other animal owners. ( she has mass cell and is in stage 3, as well as lymp involvement)


  26. Kevin Gentile on December 13, 2010 at 4:03 am

    Hailey has been fighting lymphoma since june of this year, she had 4 months of chemo (initially lumastine then cytosar and procarbazine). For the last month and a half only on prednisone, (we stopped chemo because of her liver values)and she has been doing very well. I read your book in the first 24 hours after her initially diagnosis and it helped me ask the right questions and get Hailey the best treatment. We’ve run into a snag recently, she has developed Cushing’s syndrome from being on prednisone and the skin on her back is hardening and begining to slough. Have you seen this before and Are there any suggestions you may be able to make that I can discuss with my vet this week?
    Thank you for any help you can provide
    Hailey and Kevin

    My dog is a mixed breed eleven year old with a diagnosis of mast cell cancer.
    One tumor was removed and chemotherapy was administered last year. The mast cells were found again in a lymphnode which was just removed. She has had radiation treatment for another form of cancer two years, ago, as well.
    My oncologist is recommending Palladia now . What would you advise? Thank you.
