Last Tuesday I was hit with the news that my 9 year old yorkie poo, Jett, has a STS or peripheral nerve sheath tumor on his front left foot that his vet recommends we amputate. The news hit me like a ton of bricks to say the least. Why Jett, why now? He is only

My boy was older, but also had a softball sized tumor - his was hidden and never visible as it was a soft tissue sarcoma peripheral nerve sheath tumor in the brachial plexus (arm pit).  Despite the fact this hidden evil turned out to be Grade III of III, we had 6 wonderful, happy months with

Hello, again, Whitney.  I am so sorry you find yourself here and sorrier still that your Molly may have that difficult to diagnose peripheral nerve sheath tumor soft tissue sarcoma in the brachial plexus.  This is exactly what my boy had and to my continuing despair, yes, it is difficult to diagnose.
