Hemangiosarcoma is an aggressive, malignant cancer of the blood vessels. It is most commonly found in the spleen, liver and heart and the prognosis is determined by the location of the disease. The cancer results in the production of abnormal blood vessels that can be weak and prone to leaking. As the cancer progresses, the cancerous vessels can rupture and results in blood loss. As the spleen is the organ most commonly affected by this type of cancer, rupture can lead to blood loss into the abdomen. This is an emergency situation and can result in weakness and collapse. Many pets with hemangiosarcoma often require a splenectomy.
