    DefaultI`m so scared....

    My 5 month old Hershey & I were playing & I noticed a small, pea sized skin colored bump on his elbow. It also has no hair on it. I got so, so scared. I`m going to try to see a vet tomorrow & just hope it`s not serious.

    a bump that comes out of his elbow or just a dry patch of skin? Can you take a photo?

    Good luck tomorrow. It may be useless to say but try to relax, there isn't anything that can be done until now and your apt. Hopefully it's nothing!

    Tania, thank you so much for writing me. I don`t think it is cause it is elevated & he doesn`t seem to know it`s there at all. No itching or licking or anything. God I wish I knew & wish I could be patient. I really appreciate all the help you give me.

    Lido had to have something that looked identical to this removed from his elbow. The vet said it was nothing more than a skin tag. It was taken out with a laser, healed up, and never came back.

    Hope that's all Hershey has!

    Rita, I don't want to scare you, but that is exactly what Frankie had it turned out to be a Mast Cell Tumor. Make sure you insist that the vet does a needle aspiration. Don't take no for an answer.

    Luckily, we caught it early and had surgery immediately to have it removed. It turned out to be grade 1 and the vet assures me he's going to be fine.

    Good luck!
