bump on minpin lip

Our little man, a 9 year old minpin we adopted about 4 years ago has a bump that developed from a small red spot over the past 2 weeks. He has regular checkups with no health problems and we plan to take him to the vet this week to look at it. I just wanted to do a little research on my own. Thanks in Advance.

Looks/sounds like it could be Eosinophilic Granuloma

A vet visit is a good idea to get your vets' opinion/treatment

Often it is caused by a food or environmental allergy, in some cases it can be cleared up/reduced by switching to a single protein source food


It looks like it could also be a fatty lump which might be removed by surgery depending on how it is attached to the surrounding area
