About this work


A canine skull as viewed from above showing a large and malignant bone tumour (osteosarcoma) arising from the left temporal bone. Osteosarcoma is an aggressive form of cancer and commonly metastasises (spreads to other regions). It occurs in growing bone and is the most common bone cancer found in dogs, particularly in larger breeds.
