Cutaneous Hemangiosarcoma

Sorry, I posted this on a thread about Carly... didn't mean to try to hijack the thread... I did a search and just grabbed at what I could... I'm very confused and upset. The more I search the web and read, the more I get confused... so here it is:

 

One of my Whippets just had a cutaneous hemangiosarcoma removed. I am finding several articles on visceral hemangiosarcoma which seems to involve the spleen and other vital organs. I can't quite figure out if I take the "wait and see" approach, will the cutaneous hemagio "spread" to the spleen, etc? Will this just keep re-occurring as lesions on the skin? Our path report showed clean edges on the section removed.... how accurate is that? Should I have a wider deeper section removed to "make sure" they got all of it? The more I read, the more questions I have.... help?

I think I did see your post about this when I was searching... in that one you were getting ready to have the newer "spot removed". So you're just watching and having them removed as they show up, do I understand correctly? That is what I originally figured on doing, when I first got the report from the Vet. THEN I started researching on the web...egads! Talk about too much information. I just want to make sure that the "waiting & watching" won't allow this to spread into the spleen, liver, etc. I know I'm probably over-reacting because we had to let 2 Greys go to the Bridge in the past year and my heart is still hurting. We now have "only" this 8 yr old Whippet, an 8yr old Grey, 2 two year old Whippets, and 2 four yr old Chihuahuas. Thank you for taking the time to respond, I really do appreciate your input.
