What is the recovery rate for dogs that have cancer or tumors on their paws?

I have a 6 year old female Rottweiler and she is the love of our family.

I realized that once morning that her paw is swollen and her toe was huge so I immediately took her to the vet and they said that it looked infected they prescribed antibiotics. The vet also said that there seems to be a small growth and that it may be cancerous.

She has been taken 3 doses of her antibiotics this morning. I noticed that she did not eat her 1 cup of food this morning. I called the vet and they said that she may just be having some stomach problems and to wait till this evening and if she does not eat by then to be worried. Also her paw looks less swollen yet the toe itself looks more swollen.

I don’t know how worried I should be.

Also what is the recovery rate for dogs that have cancer or tumors on their toe/paw? Any general experiences or advice is greatly accepted!!!!
