I have always noticed a mole on Coopers cheek and a small one on the back of his head!!

Cooper got groomed yesterday (what a pretty boy) any ways I see another mole and the one on the back of his head looks bigger. my bf says its always been that big, but are puppy moles something to be concerened about?

He is going for his shots in a couple weeks. I can aske the vet to look.

Have the vet take look at it when you got in, better safe than sorry.

Any kind of the bump or lump should be checked out with your vet, unfortunately cancer knows no age boundaries, but the odds are good it is isn't
There are some types that even the vet can't tell whether they are harmless or not in that case they often do a needle aspiration and to see if cancer cells are present in it.

Just to give you the idea of the number of possibilties or what a lump could be check here http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?cls=2&cat=1638&articleid=424

This is what it most likely is , http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?cls=2&articleid=445 my one grey developed when she turned 2 on her eylid
