Clinical symptoms are often nonspecific and may include anestrus in non-sterilized bitches, abdominal pain and a palpable mass in the central abdomen.
A presumptive diagnosis is usually achieved with abdominal ultrasonography, showing a mass lesion effect.
Treatment is usually curative with ovariohysterectomy.
