Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear you are worried about this lump. How long has it been there? How big is it? Is it painful to her if you touch it?
The best way to know what any lump is, and if it is cancer, and if it needs to be removed, is to do FNA: fine needle aspiration. We use a syringe to aspirate some cells from the lump, and look at the cells under a microscope. That should tell us if there is a concern of it being cancer, or a benign fatty tumor.
I hope you were able to see my responses; I have not heard back from you! How is Mae doing? Do you have any other questions?
