Customer Question
Lump I just found...

Lump I just found next to her nipple actually just about attached to it and I can grab the whole thing but when I do she lactates a lil blood but she’s not in pain at all

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

English bulldog she’s 9 never been spayed

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the bulldog's name?

Chula

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Chula?

No I can grab the lump and everything and she’s not in pain at all from it I just saw some liquid come out and put a white paper towel and it’s a pink colored fluid

I'm sorry to hear of this with Chula. There's a very good chance that a bleeding lump is neoplastic in an unspayed 9 year old. Mixed mammary tumors and mammary gland carcinomas are most common. It would be prudent to have Chula's vet needle aspirate this lump and examine the aspirate microscopically. If neoplastic cells are present, surgical excision of this lump is essential. X-rays of Chula's chest and/or ultrasound of her abdomen will be recommended predicated upon which mammary gland is affected. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

that basically saying without further actual vet testing it can be cancer or it might not even be cancer
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Yes, that's true. I do see benign adenomas and cysts as well. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

Have you ever seen a benign adenomas with bleeding coming out of the nipple though
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

I can't recall a benign growth causing bleeding in that area but it's certainly possible. As mentioned above, a bleeding mammary lump is more often associated with malignancy.
