Customer Question

My dog has two symmetrical lumps about 1 inch either side of his private parts. I took him to vets and he said its his age (15) not too worry although he thought it was coincidental that they are symmetrical. They now have got bigger. What do you think?

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Can you post a picture of the lumps on this thread?

2- How long has he had the lumps?

3- Are they bothering him?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I believe the lumps maybe tender as he doesn't like me stroking him near them as he wouldv usually let me. I saw vet around 8 weeks ago when he said not to worry. He has had them around 10wks.

1- They don't change in size; meaning like getting smaller?
