Hello! I am sorry Bella is having problems. My name is***** I am a licensed veterinarian with Just Answer. Thank you for visiting the site. I hope to be of great help to you. Please give me 10 minutes to consider your pet’s case and respond.

What have you tried so far? Is your pet taking any medications? How long has this been going on? Does your pet have any preexisting medical conditions?

Could you send a picture of your pet’s problem? Take a picture with your phone/tablet. You can try texting it to me. Press the camera or paperclip symbol by the chatbox where you type. Or press the “Add Files” button. Then select your photo(s).

Hi, Bella is not taking any medications, and this has been happening for 1 month now. And she does not have any preexisting medications. I do have a photo of it, one second and I will send it to you
Here is the photo

Usually these go away after a month or two. I'm ard there is not a good way to to remove it before then. Usually this is not serious. Any questions?

ok, I was worried because it's pretty big. Can it be cancerous?

Yes but that's very unlikely.

oh ok, so if it does no go away on it's own by December, do you recommend me taking her to the vet for a removal?
ok thank you.

You are very welcome. I wish I could do more. Let me know if you need more help. You can still chat with me later. I hope your pet recovers soon! Thank you for using Just Answer.

Thanks again. Let me know if you think of any more questions or need more help with your pet’s case.
