But like I said earlier. Different horses react differently and maybe it would spread on some horses but those I've heard about it is more successful than freezing or chemo.
Like you said, you had to repeatedly have them cut off. In that particular area, it would be difficult to aggressive cut out a tumor that size without impeding the function of the mouth. Along with that growth is a root that needs to come with. I'm pretty sure the vet knew if he started cutting in that area it would spread. I had many small cancerous tumors removed off my doberman a few years back. The cutting actually caused them to spread. Biopsies spread cancer. Look into it. Once you start cutting, you better make sure you got it all, or it will spread thru the blood stream.
