My 8 yr old standard poodle had a bump on her back about 2

My 8 yr old standard poodle had a bump on her back about 2 years ago. Our veterinarian excised it and found it to a "cost" of sorts and recommended that the next time we had to put her under with anesthesia we could remove it. As I recall, she licked it in a short period of time and it started to bleed. I lightly squeezed it and a good amount of blood popped out like a pimple being squeezed. I put neosporin on it and itt cleared up. Fast forward to 2 months ago. We have moved from PA to Myrtle Beach, SC. I took her to be clipped and realized she had the same bump same location. 2days ago, she started licking it and it opened up and started to bleed. Again, it bled and I pinched it gently. I could see a white "core" in the center which upon closer look appeared to be like dental floss 1/4 inch long and in one piece. I scqeezed it and again it popped out. There were maybe 2 more smaller bits in it and they came out too. The sore is round and slightly smaller than a dime. I put neosporin on it after cleaning it and overnight it appeared to dry up getting ready to get a scab. A few minutes ago, I checked it and she has started licking it and it has opened up. Again a smaller white "core" popped out. It does not move - not a tape worm as I have seen them. It is not flat - it is somewhat round. I do not know a vet in this area, can you help me decide how/if this is dangerous - what could it be? Thank you. Karen LeaJA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the standard poodle?Customer: No - she is otherwise healthy and take probiotics daily. (Chewy)
