Customer Question

My mom's dog has a HUGE growth that is dangling from his chest. It is now in the beginning stages of splitting apart. Do you know what this kind of growth this could be>? It's now the size of a fist.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer

The mass you are describing is it under the skin, or is it external to the skin?

What color is it?

When you say it is splitting, is it the skin splitting, or something else?

Is there any discharge or bleeding?

Is it soft when you gently squeeze it, or hard?

Any change in appetite or behavior?

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX information you can give me the better
