Canine malignant lymphoma is a progressive, fatal disease caused by the malignant clonal expansion of lymphoid cells. Although lymphoid cell neoplastic transformation is not restricted to specific anatomic compartments, lymphoma most commonly arises from organized lymphoid tissues including the bone marrow, thymus, lymph nodes, and spleen. In addition to these primary and secondary lymphoid organs, common extranodal sites include the skin, eye, CNS, testis, and bone. Lymphoma is reported to be the most common hematopoietic neoplasm in dogs, with an incidence reported to approach 0.1% in susceptible, older dogs. Despite the prevalence of malignant lymphoma, its etiology remains poorly characterized. Hypothesized etiologies include retroviral infection, environmental contamination with phenoxyacetic acid herbicides, magnetic field exposure, chromosomal abnormalities, and immune dysfunction.

Clinical Findings:

Canine lymphoma is a heterogeneous cancer, with variable clinical signs depending in part on the anatomic region involved and extent of disease. In dogs, 4 well recognized anatomic forms of lymphoma have been described: multicentric, alimentary, mediastinal, and extranodal (renal, CNS, and cutaneous). Multicentric lymphoma is by far the most common form, accounting for ~80% of all diagnosed cases.

An early clinical sign of multicentric lymphoma is the rapid and nonpainful development of generalized lymphadenopathy. In addition to dramatic peripheral lymphadenopathy, malignant lymphocytes may infiltrate internal organs including the spleen, liver, bone marrow, and other extranodal sites. Late in the course of disease, when a significant tumor burden exists, patients may show constitutional signs of illness, including lethargy, weakness, fever, anorexia, and depression.

Alimentary lymphoma accounts for <10% of all canine lymphomas. Dogs with focal intestinal lesions may exhibit clinical signs consistent with partial or complete luminal obstruction (eg, vomiting, abdominal pain). With diffuse involvement of the intestinal tract, dogs with alimentary lymphoma may show significant GI signs, including anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, and profound weight loss secondary to severe malabsorption and maldigestion.

Homeopathic Treatment.

There are about about 100 listed homeopathic remedies for cancer as stated in a book on " Homeopathic nsight Into Cancer, Caurses, treatment & Cure" by Dr Sultan Alam M Bihari.
In his book he has written, " The object of the research is to give to the profession the rational treatment of the diases so that the poor unfortunate victim of cancer may be helped much before they pass beyong the reversible stage."

Bahasa Melayu:
Dalam rawatan biasa kanser boleh dirawat dengan cara pembedahan, chemotherapy atau radiotherapy. Namun dalam perubatan homeopathy hanya makan ubat sahaja. Ada pesakit bertanyakan kepada saya, apakah homeopathy boleh jamin sembuh ?
Nah ! Saya sendiri mau tanya apakah rawatan biasa dengan bedah, kanser boleh disembuhkan ?

Tanyalah pakar mungkin mereka boleh jawab.
