I am worried about Miss Sadie. I found a small lump on her upper chest just now. It is about the size of a fingernail. Just under the skin. She has a tiny one like this under her arm that I've had the vet check several times. The one under her arm is nothing according to the vet. I won't be happy until I get this one checked out too. I'll call and make her an appt.

Amber used to get lumps a lot too. They were all just cysts and only one had to be removed. It seemed as she got older more appeared. I do hope that's all it is and that she's just fine.

Thanks Jen, I feel that it is just a cyst or fatty cyst too. But she needs her nails trimmed and her anal glands done also. So I need to get her in to get checked out.

Murphy has several lumps, most have turned out to be just fatty tumors. You vet will most likely aspirate it to gather some cells. From there the vet can tell you what it is and if you should be concerned. Until you know, don't worry.

Where exactly is the lump? If it is not next to a teat it is probably nothing. Get it checked out though and we shall keep our fingers crossed that it is nothing serious.

Doghouse, no it isn't next to a teat. It is higher up on her chest about in the middle of her chest. I'll try not to worry and just get our vet to check her out. thanks,

Hoping everything turns out fine. Our beagles are all lumpy - both Moose and Popcorn have had to have a suspicious lump removed and Booker has had five removed now (three the last go). Every one looked completely different and the biopsy was inconconclusive each time, so we had them all removed to be safe... and all tested benign after they were removed. But it is so hard until you know for sure they are okay...

Oh yes, fatty tumor, my Marlin has those too. The vet said not to worry. A check up will ease the mind. He got a troubled one on his eye lid needs to be extracted with surgery.

I took Sadie to her vet appt. today. The lump on her chest is a fatty benign tumor. The vet said if it grows and bothers Sadie, that it can be removed. So that is great!!!

Really good news! All my dogs, not just Maggie, have had many of these fatty tumors (lipomas) in all sorts of places on their bodies. If I can move them around with my fingers, then I usually don't panic. I have only had to have them removed if they get large enough to interfere with organs or if they are in a spot that bothers the dog. Maggie has a current one that the vet and I are keeping an eye on -- it is pretty fast growing and is right under her elbow. Expect that, when she next has her teeth cleaned, this one will be removed.

Cecil got a lump on the left side of her neck. We had it removed and it was benign. After the stiches were out for a while, I put her collar back on and another lump appeared. The vet stuck a needle in it and sent that away and all was o.k. Turns out the collar causes her to have ingrown hairs that start the process going and she told me that Cecil can't wear a collar any more. I use a step in harness for ease around here and when we go out I use a regular harness. Cecil loves not having to wear a collar. Can't leave any harness on though because Brandy will grab her by it.....The trial and tribulations of our babies.
