Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Would anyone be able to tell me what types of masses to look out for that would appear on an older dog? Mika has a soft benign form on the top of her skull. But her vet today found a much harder mass on her underside. Does anyone know of what it could be or what I should be concerned about? I know that this is a hard topic to answer.

Many dogs get benign masses and fatty tumors with age. They can be caused by many things. We had a bird dog that would also get fluid pockets that would form around stickers that had embedded under her skin while out hunting. This would shrink and grow on their own. Harder masses usually put me on alert more. While hard masses can be benign they are sometimes made up of materials other than fat that could lead to or be a symptom of something else. They are also more likely to interfere with other things. In short, every lump should be looked out for because any could be malignant or carry infection depending on its cause. It is possible that she might have a hernia as well and it isn't a tumor at all.

The vet had told me what concerned her about the mass on her side, was the fact that it was under the skin and harder. Not loose and fatty like the one on her head. She told me that we can remove both or just the one that she is concerned with the next time she goes in for another dental. So now we are trying to raise money for her surgeries.

she should run a biopsy on the lump and find out if it needs to be removed. it could be a soft tissue sarcoma.
