Anyone have any familiarity with mast cell tumors?

I have a 9 year old toy poodle who is having her second mast cell tumor removed on Wednesday. She had one removed near her shoulders a few years ago. It was a stage/grade I. This one is down on her right side on her ribs. Poodles don't commonly get these kinds of tumors so I don't have much familiarity with them. Is it a bad thing that she has another one? Does this indicate a greater likelihood of the cancer spreading? If anyone has any experience, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
