Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi, JACustomer. Thanks for your question.Can you submit a photograph showing where this mass is located?Is there just one? More that are smaller?Any problems eating and drinking?
Thanks for the pictures. Is this located behind an ear off to the side of the neck?
Thank you for the clarification.Without some diagnostics, it will be hard to tell you exactly what this is. The good news is that this is often a fairly safe place to have a mass as far as location goes. There's little risk of involvement with major vessels or lymph nodes. Many of these turn out to be lumps of fat (lipoma) that are benign but they can grow to a pretty large size (largest I've seen in this location was the size of a medicine ball).Surgery for this type of mass if you opt to keep it as cheap as possible should be well under the $2000 range. If you can afford to, I'd at least have it checked out and have a vet give you a quote for removal. It may not be necessary to remove it now but if it does become very large removal will be necessary.
