Thank you! That well-circumscribed bump indicates a benign neoplasm ("new growth"). A lipoma (benign fatty "glob") is likely. Pepper's vet can needle aspirate this and examine the aspirate microscopically. Fat is easy to identify and if found this bump can be simply "watchful waited". Surgical resection would be curative but not essential. If other cells are found instead, the vet may be able to identify them or might send the aspirate to our pathologist for review. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

got it, Thank you!
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 years ago
You're welcome. I should mention that some of these turn out to be filled with fluid even though they feel solid. The fluid usually indicates an apocrine or epidermoid cyst - benign lesion. I can't set a follow-up in this venue and so would appreciate your returning to our conversation with an update - even after rating - at a time of your choosing.
