Non-Surgical Tumor Removal
The contents of this section relate historical information that should not create expectations of similar results, as each case is unique.
An examination should be scheduled if a patient is to be considered for treatment.
Non-Surgical Tumor Removal utilizes very old, time-tested techniques and the latest in advanced understanding of tumor growth.
An Introduction to Tumors and Removals
A tumor is any abnormal tissue mass or swelling. Because the microscopic cells in a tumor are not normal, they do not divide, grow, and die like regular tissue cells. Tumors may be either localized or capable of spreading. Some grow within themselves and others invade neighboring normal tissue. Cancer refers to those tumors that are malignant and have a tendency to spread.
Some tumors may grow slowly and even stop while not causing any problems. They are okay to leave alone. Some tumors can grow into life threatening disease and should be eliminated as soon as possible. Tumors can be cut out with a surgical procedure, killed with radiation or chemicals, frozen, burned, cauterized, deprived of blood supply or treated with one of many complementary therapies, including herbals.

Dylan lives in Minneapolis and came to us because of a nasty tumor on his leg. Due to his age and the location of the tumor, surgery was not an option. Neoplasene ointment was applied. After many painless applications, the tumor died and the healthy skin healed well.
3-29-14 The tumor is all but gone. Today there is just a small bump where the tumor once threatened the leg.
Ali, a 7 year old yellow labrador retriever, had a fast growing mass on her elbow that became the size of a tennis ball. After Ali had most of her tumor removed surgically, the remaining tumor grew faster. The pathologist's report confirmed that the growth was a spindle cell tumor.
7 days after surgery, Ali was rechecked. The surgical site had broken open and the tumor regrew to almost the size it was before surgery. Conservative therapy was offered and Sarcoma Salve (Neoplasene) was applied.
Only a small scar remains where the spindle cell tumor threatened the leg a few months earlier. After 2 years, the tumor had not returned.
Katie was a 10 year old Labrador who developed a red lump of tissue on her elbow callus. It was removed without cutting.
1 day after application of Neoplasene salve, the skin was a little pink. A second application of Neoplasene was applied and the area was bandaged for one hour.
A short time later, hair covered the area and Clinger had only a small scar. This photo was taken 3 months after the application of salve.
A large tumor on the inside of Clinger's front leg could have been removed with surgery that may have caused loss of function in the leg. Herbal treatment removed it with minimal discomfort.
Tumor on the chest.
Isabelle had a very sore mouth because of a tumor on her lip that got in the way when she chewed her food or simply closed her mouth. When surgery failed to eliminate the tumor, Neoplasene removed the tumor completely.
Isabelle had a tumor removed at another veterinary clinic 12/20/07. It was a poorly differentiated sarcoma that might have been fibrosarcoma, spindle cell, histiocytic sarcoma, or amelonotic melanoma. On 12/26/07, Isabelle was in pain from re-growth of the tumor. Neoplasene was applied to the tumor under general anesthetic and repeated on 12/29/07.
