I Found A Lump On My Animal’s Skin. Is It Cancer?


Finding a lump or a bump in your pet which you have never noticed before, can cause serious worry for pet owners.

There are all sorts of growths that can occur on or under your pet’s skin. Each of these is worthy of examination by your veterinarian. When visiting your vet, after you’ve noticed a growth or ‘mass,’ they will ask you a few questions. So it’s best to know what’s coming, and have your answers prepared:

  • When did you first notice the mass?
  • Has it grown since you first noticed it?
  • Is it bothering your pet? (Is he licking, scratching or biting it?)
  • Has your pet ever had other masses before?

Despite not all growths being of immediate concern, it’s always worth taking your pet to the vet and checking things out.
