A perianal adenoma also known as circumanal adenoma and hepatoid adenoma is a common tumor that arises from the sebaceous glands surrounding the anus.
More than half of dogs over 10 years of age are likely to develop cancer in their lifetime. Cancerous tumors are masses of tissue that result when cells divide more rapidly than normal or do not die when they should. Because tumors can develop from any tissue, there are many types of tumors that can occur in a variety of locations. Knowing more about tumor types and their possible locations can help you monitor your dog and catch cancer early, which may help treat the disease before it gets out of control.

We report a case of a year-old female neutered Labrador with locally advanced anal sac SCC.
