Cytology of a very large facial swelling on a dog.  The growth was suspected to be either an abscess or a tumor, with a tumor being most likely.  The cytology shows a population of round cells with central nuclei and abundant cytoplasm.  I don’t know what type of tumor it is, but a tumor it certainly is.  Due to the extensive nature of the mass aggressive surgery or euthanasia was recommended.
