    Questionpossible mast cell tumour?

    I have recently found a lump on the front left leg of my 8 year old chocolate labrador (Henry) and have taken him to the vet and he's been prescribed Neocort cortisone cream and Cephalexin tablets and both are to be administered twice a day.

    He is due to re-visit the vet later this week for a follow-up to see if the lump has decreased in size or colour and if not, a biopsy may be done and possible removal of the lump.

    I joined up at this forum to try and put my mind at ease this week - the worst thing to do is Google and it the lump seems to look similar to a mast cell tumour. I've attached two photos with the first showing the location of where the lump is and another with a close-up of the lump, I have shaved the hair surrounding the lump which has made it easier to apply the cortisone cream.

    I'd love to hear from any of you and if you've had a similar lump appear on your lab.
