Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am sorry for the delay in response. If you would like to continue can you please answer a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice. 1- Is he licking the lump? 2- How long has he had the lump? 3- Has your vet done any testing on the lump like a biopsy or FNA to determine the type of lump?There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.
