Good Afternoon Jean and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

If this lump is movable and painless, it is most likely a Lipoma. This is a benign mass that is harmless unless it gets large enough to interfere with Sid's function. I would certainly have your vet check it to be sure but these are very common and will not hurt Sid. Jean. You can rest easy...

Does that make sense to you?
