If your doctor thinks it is necessary, he or she might also refer you for an for an ultrasound scan. This scan may show if the ovaries are the right size and looks normal in texture and if there are any cysts on the ovaries. Your doctor may also ask you to have a CT scan.

The tumor was a low grade fibrosarcoma, which, as in in dogs, is a malignant connective tissue cancer with tentacle-like projections that extend out from the visible tumor. It is these tentacles that make recurrence after surgery common if the surgery does not also remove a large amount of tissue around the tumor. We need a wide, clean “margin” of tissue. How big a margin? That’s what can be tricky to figure out by “just monitoring” it.
