    DefaultLong time no post - Need some advice

    Hey guys
    Sorry haven't been around much. The kids schedule keeps me busy.
    I have a question we discover a hard bump on Bailey leg the size of a dime Is there anyway of knowing if I need to be worried. Is it safe to watch or should I make an appointment as soon as possible?
    I'll see if I can take a picture
    Any thoughts

    Get it checked by a vet. There's no way of telling whether it's a benign lipoma or something malignant without testing.

    A simple aspiration procedure by your Vet will tell if it's just fatty tissue or if it needs further examination.

    That's what I did when I discovered Simba had one. It was about the size of a pea. I don't know if this has anything to do with the aspiration, but since then it has grown, in a very short amount of time, to a walnut. Vet said fatty lump, but it still has me concerned at the rate it is growing.

    Yep, no way to know without testing. Aspiration is the first step. I'm sure it's nothing!

    And, good to see you!

    It has actually got alot smaller over night about half the size. I'm going to watch it over the next few days and see what happens. If it grows at all or is still there by Friday we are going to head to the vet.
