Biopsy is the word you're looking for. There's an oldie labrador cross near us with a growth on it's leg that is well attached and the size of a large orange. Biposy showed it was benign not malignant and, as it doesn't seem t o bother him and as he was an oldie there was a greater risk of him pegging it during surgery his owners haven't had him operated on to remove it.

My dog has a few lumps, but only had to have one biopsy as it was quite quick growing (thats not so good apparently), however it was benign and so was OK.

You are right to get the vet to check it over - my fingers are crossed that it is OK, I know it is an anxious time waiting for the result.

my cat has just had a tumour removed. Initially it was thought to be an abscess and then granulous tissue due to a bit of tooth or claw inside. During surgery it was discovered that it is some kind of tumour and it goes deep into the pelvis so means possible further surgery which could lead to paralysis. I am sure you already plan to get it checked but if not, please get it looked at by your vet. My cat is only 5 so not old and if it is the type of tumour my vet suspects(fibrosarcoma) then it could be bad news for the cat.
