It sounds like the sebaceous cysts our dogs are developing now that they're older. They swell with a clear liquid and suddenly burst a number of weeks down the road...very messy, but not dangerous. Normally we just wait till their next dental cleaning and have the cyst removed while they're under for that, but our vets tell us that it really isn't necessary unless the cyst is in a bad spot or gets irritated.

If it's a new cyst, when it gets large enough, we have the vet do a needle biopsy of it, just to make sure we know what we're dealing with--but so far, most of them have been benign sebaceous cysts.
