Unhappy hard lump on belly button

Hi,

My Sophie, who is almost two, has a hard lump on her belly button that is the size of a cherry. We took her to the vet today who said that he didn't know what it was or what was causing it. He said hernias are usually softer. He said it could be a reaction to the hernia repair when she was spayed (inguinal and belly button). I'm wondering if it could be a fat deposit. She also stole a chicken leg bone the week before and I'm wondering if that is related to it. They removed fluid and it was just white blood cells I believe. The doctor wants to remove it surgically, but I hate to have to have Sophie go through a surgery unless it's absolutely necessary. Any ideas? Thanks so much!

I forgot to add that the original surgery was over a year and a half ago.

Seems an awfully long time ago to be related to the spay. Could he just do a needle biopsy?

They did an aspiration cytology evaluation, but I like your idea about doing a biopsy first. Unfortunately, my husband took her in because I couldn't make it, so I didn't get to ask all my questions. Surgery just seems drastic. Thanks for your help.
