Lump on friend's dog's lip - should they be concerned?
I have a friend that's concerned about a lump on their Dog's lip.
He's 3 years, 4 months old, his Mom was a Artic Wolf & Lab mix and Dad was a Shihtzu & Terrier mix.
They took him to the Vets the other day (paid $200 for the privilege!) and all they really got told was that it *might* be cancer or histiocytoma.
They can surgically remove it and send it away for analysis to determine if it's cancerous etc. which would cost another $800!
Having looked in to this a bit, from what I've seen, it is not like any cancer/histiocytoma pictures I have found anywhere else.
Here's a picture of what it looks like:
The lump has not grown any bigger, is hard, smooth and has not bled.
I was wondering if anyone had ever seen anything like this before, or had an idea if it was likely to be cancer/histiocytoma?
Any help is very much appreciated (especially as it could potentially save my friend $800!).
Thank you very much!
Are there any other vets your friend can go to to see if they will cost less money?
