Lump on dog's chest

Common Questions and Answers about Lump on dog's chest


Avatar n tn I was petting her last night and noticed a small lump between her chest and stomach. It is pretty hard and moves around. I know that dogs get fatty tumors but I need some more info on this. I am pretty concerned with it. She is my pride and joy.
Avatar n tn My 5 year old male Doberman called Fiel, ( which means faithful / loyal in Spanish) has a hard swelling around his first nipple on his right side. It's about 3 inches round and protrudes out at the centre about 1/4 inch. It looks like half a large boiled egg. At first I thought at first it was a muscle strain but now it feels like its attached and is definitely noticeable. I will be taking him to my vet on Monday but I've got a terrible feeling this is something bad.
Avatar f tn I recently noticed a small lump where my dogs front leg meets his chest. It's a light red color and small (probably 5 or 6 millimeters). It's hard and I feel like it's gotten slightly bigger since I first noticed it about a week ago, but I might just be paranoid. He's acting perfectly normal and is always full of energy though. I haven't gotten a chance to take him to a vet yet, and I'm just curious what the likelihood of it being a tumor is?
Avatar m tn She's in very good health and still has plenty of energy despite her age. About a year and a half ago, my sister noticed a lump growing on her back leg. After a vet examination, it was determined that it was a tumor. At the time, we thought it best to leave it be due to her age, but now the tumor's grown to the point of resembling a grapefruit and is breaking through the skin, ripping her leg open more and more every day. As mentioned earlier, while old she is fit and in very good health.
508440 tn?1295063915 I am supposed to take him back to the vet next week for full body films, and a urine culture. Just now, I found a new lump on his hind leg. It feels similar to the lipoma, however he does not want me to touch it. HE has also started smelling really bad this week. Does anyone have any idea what could be going wrong? I assume that if he has cancer, something more would be wrong with his bloddwork, right? Please let me know what else we could be looking for, other than cancer. Thanks!
539893 tn?1213841330 My neighbor had a similar situation and had to use ace bandages to keep her dog's wound clean (it was a tumor on her chest right where it hit the ground).
Avatar n tn This one is on her chest, just in front of her armpit? Paw pit? That one is on sort of a stem and it's fast appearance has the vet concerned. So today I'm trying to read up on all this and everything I see suggests to NOT remove them. Same as my original vet said. Deal with infections if and when they happen. So now I'm thinking of asking to not remove the one on her back or head. Still we should deal with that dangling one. At least find out for sure that it's not cancer.
675347 tn?1365464245 Hello, My dog Misty (age 14, spayed, but very very happy fit, and very active) recently had a mammary tumor removed. I got the lab. report on this tumor today. The cells were part benign, and part malignant. 2 types of malignancy present. I was not told which specific forms, just that there were two types. The vet got good margins in excision, & superficial examination of inguinal lymph nodes ( position of the tumor on lower mammary gland) showed no irregularity or enlargement.

529981 tn?1212853666 There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.
Avatar n tn The clicking has taken on ear pain and I've also had chest pain and my face is kind of puffy with circles around my eyes. I have over 100 symptoms with MS, but I can say the clicking is what gets under my skin the most in addition to my mouth being extremely dry. I live in the wonderful area of south Jersey so I dare not ask for any pain med or muscle relaxer or I get labeled as a drug addict.
Avatar m tn My dog (shepherd/husky mix, 73 pounds, 12 years old) began to have grand mal seizures last week. He had two seizures, one on Sunday and one on Monday, at almost exactly the same time in the evening. After the second seizure, the vet put him on phenobarbital (97 mg/2x per day). He's been on it for five days now and is still pretty out of it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most of the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly.
Avatar m tn Prior to this, the only time she has ever cried from pain was when I accidentally closed the door on her tail. It's not a constant moan, but somewhat frequent throughout the night or in the evening when we are watching tv. While upright she appears fine and not in pain, she plays and runs as much as usual, so much so that people still think she is a puppy even though she is over ten. I've been to the vet probably ten times in the past six weeks or so.
519226 tn?1378994921 It's always the other person, never her. You are dammed if you talk to her, and dammed if you don't talk to her. It's like walking on eggshells all the time. You never know when the venom is coming. She talks about people in a nasty manner. She lies and when you call her on it, she denies it. She starts trouble with me and my siblings. My brother hasn't had anything to do with her in the last several years. No one wants to be around her because she is so nasty.
149675 tn?1416676733 You lay them right, and you can walk on them for years... Why are men's brains bigger than a dog's?...So they don't hump your leg at parties... How many men does it take to change an empty paper roll? Nobody knows, it's never been done... Why was the blonde's bellybutton sore?...Her boyfriend was blonde too... How do you know when a man is getting old?.. When his knees buckle, and his belt won't....
Avatar n tn Very interesting that you bring that up as I am a cutter and am also obsessed with skin picking (any bump on my face, chest or arms must be picked at) and hair tweezing (I spend *hours* tweezing out each individual leg hair). Good luck kicking the oxy habit! From what I remember when a guy I knew went through detox from oxy, swimming helped a little with the tightness in his skin/aches/etc.
Avatar n tn i had echo done on my heart--normal chest xray--normal blood tests--normal (still waiting for the results of the allergy test though) so like the other post said...i feel better about my heart, and my health but i still cant breathe. Pulmonary function tests where the doctor said "it could be asthma, very mild though" he prescribed singulair and an albuterol inhaler for before i run. sometimes taking the inhaler can make me lightheaded. so i dont like using it.
1405176 tn?1281137777 That evening, he sort of declined to go on a walk with our son, so he tried again in the morning when it was cooler, but the dog did not want to go then either. I took him for a walk in the afternoon, hoping he was feeling better (this is the 2nd day since he didn't eat dinner), and he went very slowly around the block, but peed and had a bowel movement. That night he started labored breathing, we took him to the ER, and he died in our arms.
2186126 tn?1384961026 5 female schnauzer, she is blind and deaf, in the last 6 months she has undergone 2 surgeries one for a lump on her neck and recently had a toe removed as it had a growth. She is now panting a lot, eating a lot drinking a lot and as the pot belly so I know she has cushings disease. In March of this year I lost my other female schnauzer to diabetes, being diagnosed 6 months before hand she was 13.5 years old.
203342 tn?1328740807 He has trouble with his back legs a lot now just suddenly giving out especially on stairs. He struggles to get up if he's been laying down for awhile. I also don't think he sees or hears as well as he used to. He's overweight which seems to partly go with the Cushings. We have him on a low-fat diet and it doesn't seem to help much. I try to walk him but he tires out easily and I wind up having to carry him home because he'll sit down and refuse to walk anymore!
Avatar n tn I went to my primary care doctor who said he didn't think it was heartburn but said maybe I needed a breast reduction because my breast could be putting too much strain on my chest muscles. (Yeah, whatever, my breast are large but not that large!!) Today, I was raking my backyard and it started that was at 11 am and I'm just now up and about at 5pm. My doctor prescribed me a mild muscle relaxer last time and I'm glad I had some left.
Avatar f tn The vomiting is so awful to watch in the end as it just goes on and on and on... There are many anti emetic meds to try. Has your vet not prescribed anything? Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end.
Avatar n tn I have had it for months on and of. I have a lump constanly in the crease of my finger. If I go climbing or carry shopping bags its really painful. So I try to be careful not to put pressure on it to stop the "pop" which is even more excrutiating. Hope someone out there can help.
Avatar n tn The first thing I knew about this was an egg shaped smooth lump came up on her ribs literally overnight. It wasn't there appeared Sunday morning. I was so sure it couldn't be cancer, and thought maybe she had a bruised rib. The vet did a needle-biopsy, and suspected Hemangiosarcoma. Yet she still seemed fine! Very well in herself with no lethargy or vomiting. She was no youngster but was incredibly fit and active. Then suddenly she had an internal bleed.
288415 tn?1231634102 It was like I was allergic to my own ear wax. Then I went to a different doctor because I had a bad rash on my chest that also itched and wouldn't do away. I told her about my ears. She suggested using the cortizone treatment in the ears too. It did offer temporary relief. Now I can't hear properly out of one side... funny thing though... that ear no longer itches... but it does ring constantly and I feel like I'm under water. The other ear is still driving me nuts from itching.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, after suffering for nearly 2 years with a mysterious neurological-like condition, I have almost given up all hope of living a normal life again. After a whole lot of research on the net, I have run into several postings with people describing my condition almost down to the exact letter. However, many of these posts are on some obscure website with the postings being months or years old.
