Hello again and thanks for waiting.

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. While there can be no guarantees if this nodule has suddenly appeared over a 24 hour period then the chances are it is nothing too serious such as a cancer for example. These sorts of things are usually abscesses, cysts or or allergic reactions to insect bites etc.

2. Provided your dog is otherwise healthy then you would be taking no risk in just observing it for a couple of days in case it reduces on it's own. If it does not reduce then the best thing would be to have your vet take a look to confirm the diagnosis. Many such simple lesions can be resolved with a course of antibiotics or simple lancing.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
