Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
Is she still on antibiotics from the procedure?
How long ago were the antibiotics finished?
Okay. It is possible that this could be a small abscess, or a seroma/fluid pocket. You will not be able to do anything to treat this tonight until a vet sees it tomorrow, but you could give your dog some benadryl to calm her and help her rest despite the constant oral annoyance. The dose is 1mg/lb. If the lump is still there in the morning, I would see a local vet.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply.

Good, I am glad that it turned out to be nothing serious, and that the sac-like growth you thought you were seeing was just the normal anatomy. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns! I was happy to be able to assist last night. Please let me know if you have further questions, and please do not forget to rate my service so that I will receive credit for assisting you. Take care!
