Common Questions and Answers about Lump on golden retriever

lump

The lump on your Golden's neck could be a fatty tumor (lipoma). Golden's do get a lot of dermal lesions, often secondary to allergies, but they also get a lot of tumors. I think it best to have the biopsy performed. Once the biopsy results are in you will have a better idea how to proceed. Some tumors are malignant, but do not spread and others can metastasize easily. Please post another question when you get the biopsy results back and I will be able to help you further.
I am kind of lost right now. My 13 and half Golden Retriever was diagnosed a year ago with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. He is for the time being in remission, taking twice a month 10 Leukeran pills (chemo), and once a day 10 mg of Prednisone. He never really had any symptoms, and it was just discovered through a regular check up. He is a big dog (100 lbs), and has a few lipomas.
I have a 10 year old Golden Retriever that has developed a hard lump on the bride of her nose, that you can press on with no reaction from the dog. Took her to the vet and she really had no answers but to biopsy it, really don't know what to do. any ideas?
our mix breed,( part golden lab, part huskie, part miniture collie, part retriever) has a nickel size blood filled lump on his toe. I took him to the vet who aspirated fluid and checked it under the microscope..she said it was hard to diagnois because of all the blood, but said she the cells were abnormal...she said if the growth is removed the toe should come with it..fine but we don't have $1000 to spend on this procedure, which she said minute by minute is the approximate cost....

I have an 8 month old golden retriever and have just noticed a lump on the back of his meck - just above where his back starts. Th lump is about the size of a gold ball. Could this be the identity chip we had put in or something sinister?
(everything you discribed was right on the mark)She is a cocker spaniel and I am always cleaning her ears, (every 4 to 5 days at least). And the lump that formed on her ear flap is about the size of a half dollar. Thank god I found it on a routine ear cleaning. But it got big just that fast. I took her to the vet this morning. And tomorrow, they are going to do sugery on her ear. She is my baby, and she gets sick so fast. So, I'm going to take care of this quickly.
My 12 year old golden retriever has a squishy lump in his ear flap about the size of a half dollar. It is not red or inflamed and you cannot tell anything from the outside, you can only tell by feeling. I am wondering what this could be. He doesn't seem to be in any pain or bothered by it at all. Thank you.
I have a golden retriever and I just discovered that she has lumps all over the ear flaps, under the skin, what could it be
I am seeking some advice for my Dog. She is a 10 year old Golden Retriever mix. I notice a very large lump between her shoulder blades (grape fruit size). Took her to the vet and he put her on antibiotics. The lump went down considerably as it is now quarter size. However,,,, all she does is sleep now, morning and night and I have to beg her to get up to go outside with me. She seems normal other than wanting to lay down all the time..... could she have a problem with a disc in that area?
two days back i noticed a small button sized lump, pinkish black in front of his lower jaw on the right side of his mouth, on the gum itself. i have called my vet and he asked me to observe it fr 2 days to see if it grows. i am extremely scared fearing the worst. can anyone give me any information regarding this problem? please help!!!
8 week old female golden retriever puppy with a pea size lump on the belly near the nipple. No pain to the touch and the puupy is eating and acting normal.
My related experience was with a 10 year old large Golden Retriever that lived to be 12 before he was put "down". He was anesthetized and the "fat pocket" removed when discovered at 10 years. The biopsy showed a slow acting cancer and we decided not to treat with chemo/radiation. The pocket returned a couple of years later and was worse and cancerous that was when the decision was made to end his life.
He now has a swollen lump on his side where he fell. It's right below his rib cage. He doesnt seem to be in any pain and is eating and drinking normally. He doesnt show signs of discomfort when I touch the swollen lump either. Just wondering if I should be really worried or if this is like a doggie bruise?
I have a hard, fixed 10 mm. lump on my palmaris longus muscle, one month duration. It is not tender nor swollen. It moves when the forearm is flexed. Best recollection, post trauma with cuspid of my 110 lb Golden Retriever. The general area was initially tender and swollen, which resolved within days to the now present lump. I am a 63 yr old of otherwise excellent health. I have an appt with family doc, since this has not resolved. Best guess ??
My 8/9 year old golden retriever has been acting a bit strange lately. She hasn't been eating her food when we give it to her, only a couple hours after. She has a very dry nose. I guess she's been very "lazy" lately, lying around and not responding to anything that usually excites her. I also noticed a tiny lump on her side, that you can kinda move around. She has a strange scar on her "elbow" that she's had since I could remember.
We have a 14 y-o Golden Retriever who developed a lump on the inside of her right rear leg...up towards her groin. Due to her 'feathers', we never noticed it until my husband was giving her a bath earlier this summer. By that time, it was about the size of a softball. It didn't seem to bother her, and due to our financial situation (he's disabled, without income and my salary barely covers necessities), we couldn't afford to take her to the vet.
I took out 9 year old, spayed, Golden Retriever, Kelly, to the vet the other day because she has been breathing heavier than usual for about 3 days and had slight eye discharge out of one eye. We thought she might have "the flu" since is has been going through our house. Our vet said it was cancer and she only had a couple of weeks to live. She based this on a physical exam, blood tests (which she told me all came back good) and an x-ray.
It's about three quarters of an inch in diameter, and it seems like he cut a spot a little under half of an inch across on one side of the lump. It's kinda deep but not bleeding... he obviously did it earlier today. I've disinfected and protected the spot, but what concerns me is that when I looked closely there seemed to be a couple tiny "holes", like the lump was a pocket, and when I applied pressure there was a white-ish thick fluid coming out of these.
I am no expert but it may be a sebaceous adenoma. I usually choose to err on the side of caution. I see any abnormal growths or lumps I always have them checked by one of my Vets.
I am so sorry about your news and I feel your pain & confusion. I have a beautiful high energy healthy & happy 11 year old golden retriever who's biopsy came back today as a fibrosracoma also. She developed a lump on her upper jaw and under her muzzle that grew pretty fast so a biopsy was in order.
I have some experience with a Golden Retriever that developed fat pockets on his chest at about the age of 10. On large one was removed and the dog was diagnosed with a slow growing cancer. We did not treat the cancer and additional pockets formed a couple of hears later and he was put down at age 12. The cancer was checked by biopsy - you didn't mention any biopsy, why not. That is not an expensive procedure if tissue is easily obtained. You didn't tell us the age and breed of your dog.
My 7 and a half year old Golden Retriever died Monday 31st March 2008. 3 weeks ago he had a bit of a cough, took him to the vets, injected him with an antibiotic steroid thing he seemed to pick up then his breathing got difficult and he basically panted for another 2 weeks before he passed away. He visited the vets 4 more times in this period and they didn't know what was wrong. Diagnosis ranged from a sore back to a lump somewhere or evena tumour.
As they are harmless tumors, and not likely to turn cancerous, they are best left alone. I met a Golden Retriever on a dog-walk about a year ago. He had a lipoma approximately the size of half a football! I was shocked and amazed when his owner told me it causes him no trouble, and the vet said because of his age, to leave it be! Apparently it was not putting pressure on nerves, so was not causing pain.
When we put our 12 year old Golden Retriever down because of chest (fat pocket) cancer I stood by to try to comfort him as the vet injected the heart stopping drug. I'm not sure I recommend that either, but I didn't wnat to leave he alone with strangers.
He has been on lasix and some other heart mess since then, but he is almost constantly in a state of wheezing, coughing, gagging, hacking up fluid, and activity intolerance. Additionally, he has a recurrence of a benign lymphoma growing out of his side. He is a medium-sized schitzoo-poodle mix, and this growth is now the size of a football, weighing him down.
Our golden retriever died suddenly at age 10 on 12/28. She was recently diagnosed with Valley Fever (we live in AZ) and started on antibiotics 2 weeks prior to her death. She also might have had osteosarcoma (bone cancer) as the xray of her paw (recent limping) indicated something eating away at the bone, and the only causes of that were bone cancer and/or Valley Fever. We were happy that she tested positive for Valley Fever since that is treatable with meds.
I have a male golden retriever, he is 13-1/2 years old and I'm extremely worried. My dog hasn't been eating properly for the past few weeks, he refuses to eat his normalNormal saline flush food so we've been cooking him rice/eggs/meat/liver etc. Then after a while he doesn't eat himself unless we feed him by handsHand or foot spasms Hand tremor..and now he doesn't eat at all. Though he does eat some type of snacks. Now, he doesn't seem to have the energy to get up.
My pets have always been very dear to me. I still get a lump in my throat even now when I think back on sending my kitty Smutty and my dog Trooper over the bridge. But once I got to the point where the pain really isolated me, they all became even more dear to me. Trooper never left my side as my dog Belle does now. Trooper even growled at my husband one night when my husband was going ballistic because I couldn't clean the house like I used to.
