    DefaultEar tumor?

    I noticed a growth in Frankie's ear yesterday. It's not very big, maybe half a cm wide, and bulbous. I'm trying not to freak out and assume it's yet another mast cell tumor. I can't see a vet removing it, where it's located.

    Reading online, ear tumors seem to be fairly common and malignant in dogs. Can anyone give me advice, or share your experience with something similar?

    Wish I had some insight for you Amy. The only growths I've dealt with have been fatty tumors and hystiocytomas.

    i was thinking hystiocytoma but a vet needs to see and diagnose.
    hopefully, it is not anything too scary.
    keep us posted.
