I noticed it about 1 month ago and just didnt think anything of it, thinking it would go away, well its not gone. He has an apt. this Friday with his vet. I am wondering what it could be, the first thought that comes to my mind is cancer! I am wondering if there is anything else it could be?

Avatar m tn Hi I have a question about my dog Angelique. 2 days ago I noticed a soft lump on the inside of one of her legs. When I touched it it was soft and moved around. It did not seem to hurt her when I touched it. She is a little overweight. I read up on the internet about soft lump and I read it possibly afatty tumor. Is it true that fatty tumors are harmless and nothing to be worried about and does it sound like that might possibly be what my dog has?
Avatar n tn About three weeks ago, a dog that weights 126 lbs ran into my leg. Immediately, my leg began to swell and the spot where I was hit turned a little red. It is located about four inches above my ankle on the inside of my leg. I put some ice on my leg and propped it up on a chair. My leg was a little sore for the next two days, but it is not difficult to walk or run. Then I noticed that blood was pooling at the bottom of my foot.
Avatar m tn My dog Pepsi is an 11 year old black lab. She has a fatty lump on her side, but recently I've found a hard lump on her hind leg about the size of a pea. I've also noticed that sometimes she's been holding it funny, but I'm not sure if she had just twisted her leg funny. Is this cancer?
Avatar n tn my dog has a small lump behind his left front leg. it causes no pain what could it be?
Avatar n tn He's adorable. Today he started limping pretty bad, and I found a lump on his front leg that is a bit smaller than a golf ball and black. It's obviously causing him pain. I am getting him in to the vet asap, but guess I just wondered if anyone can give me some idea of what it is. Any chance that it isn't cancer? Thanks so much. Any input is hugely appreciated.
Avatar f tn Right now she has 4 of them - 2 on her left hind leg, one on her left side near her front leg and one on her head. When I pop them out they are greyish white in colour and large. Quite often they are pasty in texture but sometimes they are hard. They show up as a white lump under her skin. They do not bother her, except when I squeeze them. We feed her a mixture of home made dog food and Purina Dog Chow. Are these common on this type of dog?
Avatar f tn Several month ago I took her to the vet. He tried to draw something out of the tumor, but nothing came out. He called me back and said my dog had cancer. The surgery is over $900.00 dollars witch I do not have. She wines all the time, but has always done that since she was a puppy. Is she in pain, and do I need to put her down? We love her very much, and she has had a good long life.
Avatar n tn How long has the lump been noticeable? If it came up recently and very quickly, it may be nothing more than an insect bite. Spider bites are notorious for causing some pretty spectacular swellings in both humans and animals. When you feel the lump, does it move freely under the skin, or does it seem to be attached to deeper tissues?
Avatar n tn Large lump that developed overnight on my pompoo's left front leg above the knee. Could this be some type of insect bite?
1773313 tn?1314173275 my dog has had a bump on the left side of his leg for years and i never thought anything of it because a friend told my family it was just from laying on his side. but one morning my dog scratched it on the doggy door and it bleed alot and ive seen a couple of little bumps on him to. it dosent bother him and i can touch it with out hurting him but i wanna know what it is and if i should be worryed about it.
436837 tn?1293796826 I know for a fact it has with my dog. She had a broken leg years ago (in her past life before I rescued her) Since then she has limped, and 'hitched' that leg from time to time, especially when the weather turned damp and cold. I started her with the supplement a few months ago in the Spring. I have not looked back! For testimony, she is leaping over hurdles 3-4 feet tall! She did that same thing today, chasing a flying bird! She took my breath away!
Avatar n tn etc etc which often means that puppy/dog ends up in an already crowded Shelter. (and if there simply is no more room, that dog gets put to sleep. Even getting INTO a Shelter can result in being put to sleep if the dog is hard to re-home for any reason) I was shocked to hear that as I didn't realize at the time that Shelters were so overburdened with unwanted dogs....
1518151 tn?1320452547 My nine year old husky lab mix has a golf ball + sized lump on her foreleg just below knee. A biopsy was done two weeks ago with dx. of nerve sheath tumor. Vet recommends surgery to remove tumor, which may return in months to years. I don't want to cause any suffering as she has no symptoms at this point, but it did come up quite suddenly. Anybody with experience of this type of cancer? I am very fearful of surgery turning into amputation.
Avatar n tn My 7yr old lahsa rapso has just had surgery as we found a lump which seemed to be under the muscle on his back left leg near the stomach. However the vet has told us that the lump was infact the muscle. He says it looks like a thickend muscle but he has only seen it once before and the last dog turned out to have muscle cancer, But he says it may just be an abnormal thickining. Ive tried looking this up on the net but cant find anything on thickend dog muscle lumps. anyone have any information??
203342 tn?1328740807 com/wiki/Dog_Cushings_DiseaseIt will explain everything to you. My dog was just diagnosed with Cushings she is 10years old. She is a Siberian Husky and she has a longer life expectancy so I am treating her. She has had all the symptoms you describe. Panting, drinking water like crazy, back legs very weak and lost a lot of muscle, eating like a wild dog,up all night has to pee all the time even in the house which she NEVER EVER did before. She lost her eyesight but that doesn't bother her much.
Avatar n tn her only guess was panosteitis, which is not common in a dog her size(also i do not feed puppy food; i feed canidae which is all life cycles). She otherwise seems ok, just either in pain or at least in discomfort. she eats and drinks normally, she's wants to run and explore the way she has, but she can't. when she does run it's a bunny hop instead of being gated where the 4 feet touch at different times.
Avatar f tn I had a grade 2 mast cell tumor removed from my dog's inner leg, close to abdomen back in January. She has been fine since then til about 3 wks ago when I noticed her entire lower belly area was red, inflamed, and there were a lot of lumps. It seemed to come up suddenly. She was licking the area constantly. I can't really tell where I defined lump would be because they appear to be everywhere. She is on prednisone and prilosec now.
Avatar f tn It still doesn't seem to pain her, but the skin has been stretched so much that it's starting to bleed, and it's really affecting her ability to walk. She has to move her leg way out due to this lump (tumor?). It is so sad to watch her gamely trying to navigate around with this huge lump. It's turned very red and angry looking, but again, she doesn't seem to be too concerned about it. Occasionally we'll see her lick it, but very rarely.
Avatar f tn Well, it is six years later and I still have pain in my groin that radiates down my left leg. It feels like a rubber band is wrapped tightly around my leg right where your underwear is. I constantly pull at my underwear if I have it on but it doesn't matter if it's on or not.........the pain is still there. It even wakes me up at night hurting. I have changed doctors but the new doctor suggested maybe it was that my bladder had fallen and ask if I would like to try a pessary.
Avatar m tn Its almost like once one kind of food hurts her stomach she wont try it again. We have tried Canidae, Califorinia Natural, Evo, and Purina food. Now the only thing she eats are nibbles of eggs, carrots, and brown rice. She has had to have an IC from the vet twice for not drinking. We were thinking that maybe protein could hurt her stomach/liver? Also, btw, she came from a very dirty rescue place.
Avatar n tn He is very tired not eating much and has formed a lump on his leg. Im not sure what is wrong with him maybe parasites. from the removal of his spleen. what should i do?
Avatar m tn or has it become so invasive it affects the whole leg? Generally, the older a dog is, the more risks surrounding surgery and recovery time is longer. That is a fact, and the vet will probably say the same. There is a chance either she won't wake up, or will have a hard time recovering from an amputation. That's the worst case scenario, for which you should be prepared. However, that said, I am a great believer in tough old dogs! I have seen a few, that's why.
337969 tn?1208795849 My dog had the same thing on his leg. it was a cyst and they just removed it. they tested for cancer, but it came back negative. he just had a couple stitches and that was it! Go to another vet for sure!
