    DefaultMitzi

    Had Mitzi, 11, to the vet this AM for check-up. She has a small growth on the top of her nose, about the size of a mosquito bite. I noticed it a few months ago. He would have to give her anesthesia to get a biopsy sample. At her age, I don't know if it's worth the risk. Should I take her in for the biopsy or wait to see if it gets bigger?

    I would wait a week and if it gets bigger take her in. I have heard of dogs that make it at that age. Good thoughts for her.

    It's not a great spot for a lump ... I'd watch carefully for changes in size/texture etc ..
    if she's a healthy 11 the risk of a general is not much higher than for a younger dog ... has she had bloodwork done lately? (that could also help indicate if the lump is something to worry about.

    Hopefully it's a little cyst and all is fine
