Is radiotherapy in cutaneous grade II mast cell tumors mandatory?
A very important question, because cutaneous mast cell tumors are very common and radiotherapy is not always and everywhere available. The answer: If these tumors are completely excised, adjuvant radiotherapy might not be necessary in the majority of dogs, as this study shows.

A retrospective study was performed on 31 dogs with completely excised, grade II, cutaneous mast cell tumors in order to determine recurrence rates and sites.

Distant tumor recurrence developed in 22% of dogs, and local tumor recurrence developed in 11% of dogs; however, the vast majority of these animals were incompletely staged initially.

Complete surgical excision of grade II mast cell tumors was associated with effective local control in 89% of these dogs.

Therefore, adjuvant radiation therapy might not be indicated in the majority of dogs with complete surgical excision.
