pearls pop Posted October 22, 2007 Report Share Posted October 22, 2007 I just got back from dropping off Pearl at the vets for removal of 3 lumps under the skin that are on her left rear knee. 4 years ago she had a small pea sized bump that in 5 days grew to the size of half a walnut on her left rear hip., I had that removed mainly because my vet was worried that Pearl would snag the protruding bump on something and then we would have a wound/infection problem. i also wanted to know if it was a bad tumor and the test said they were benign. The three new bumps were discovered by my vet when i took pearl in for booster shot last wednesday and I made an appt. for monday (today) to have the surgery, these bumps grew maybe 20% in size over the weekend. My vet says she thinks 2 of the lumps are just fatty tumors (these grew the most over the weekend), the three bumps are close together and sort of lined up, with the two fatty tumors on either side of the other lump, which my vet says worries her because it is hard and not shaped like the other two. Pearl is nine years old and i am aware that older female dogs often get many types of tumors. i I am not sure what i am asking but would like any feedback or knowledge that anyone wishes to share. I am wondering if this will be a recurring thing as pearl gets older, is there a cause for this or ? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
