In human medicine, cysts are common complications of the BG (OMOLE et al., 2003; SOSNIK et al., 2007) while malignant neoplastic growths of the BG are considered as rare and represent only 2% to 7% of all vulvar carcinomas (CARDOSI et al., 2001; LEE et al., 2015).
Formation of new blood vessels is critical for neoplastic growth and results from the predominance of proangiogenic factors over those inhibiting angiogenesis [18].

The size and proximity of lump to prescapular lymph node lead to the suspicion of either caseous lymphadenitis, pyogenic infection or any kind of neoplastic growth that were differentiated based upon the findings of fine needle aspiration and confirmed that lump was a cyst having clear fluid.
In these cases, an initial diagnosis of aortic body tumor was based on gross features, the anatomic location of the neoplastic growths, and the histologic pattern of the neoplasm; immunoreactivity to NSE confirmed these findings.
Irreparable injuries of eye or severe orbital and eye ball injuries, neoplastic growth in small ruminants need enucleation or extirpation of eye along with tarsorrhaphy depending upon the nature of malady and surgeon's choice (Tyagi and Singh, 2010).

In the present case too, the dog was in the most susceptible age for neoplastic growth. Increased exposure to solar radiation, lack of adnexal pigmentation, chronic ocular surface irritation (microtrauma), viral agents, hormonal, genetic and immunologic factors may precipitate ocular SCC in case of dogs and cats (Pigatto et al., 2010; Takiyama et al., 2010).
