Hello, I am Dr. RB and I am a small animal veterinarian. If it is a firm mass that is tender to the touch, this is not consistent with a lipoma. My primary concern is that it may be an enlarged axillary lymph node or an lipoma/seroma that could have become infected (i.e. become an abscess). Other skin masses (e.g. histiocytoma, mast cell tumor or other sarcoma) can also not be ruled out. Try your best to calm her down and keep as quiet as she can. My recommendation is that this needs to be examined and aspirated again asap. If she you are able to get her comfortable and her appetite is okay, then call her regular DVM on monday. If not, then I would be concerned about infection and/or inflammatory response. I hope this is helpful advice for you:)
