Skin cancer is a relatively common form of cancer in dogs. Just like humans, exposure to UV rays is the main cause of skin cancer in dogs.

Three of the most common types of skin cancer that affect dogs include Mast Cell Tumors, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Malignant Melanoma

Mast cell tumors are the most common skin tumors in dogs and can appear anywhere on the body. Whereas squamous cell carcinoma typically affects older dogs.

Malignant Melanoma, on the other hand, is usually found on the mouth or mucous membranes, although it can also appear on hairy parts of the body.

Some of the common symptoms of skin cancer in dogs are lumps or bumps, sudden change in size or shape of mole or wart, skin irritation or itchiness, and swelling of lymph nodes
