Lumps on paws

I found some lumps on my dogs paws....one on each of her front legs, maybe 2 or 4 inches below the bottom of her paw. They're both in exactly the same spot. They look like growths....same colour/texture as skin but with black mark...

They do not look like ticks..I've had a cat with ticks and it didn't look like these. Also weird that they are in EXACTLY the same spot on each leg...

Will get them checked at the vet tomorrow..but hoping someone on here might know what they are....

Are they a little to the side from the back of the leg and mirror image positioning between the legs? I'm wondering if it's the pad for the dew claw?

Sorry but I can't figure out where you mean they are on your dog. 2 or 4 inches below my dog's paw would not be on his paw at all or even on his body, anywhere. ?????

Have you heard of interdigital cysts? They are between the toes. Would that fit?

Otherwise Hazel's question is a good one and would fit right in if you meant 2 or 4 inches ABOVE the paw. They'd have always been there though.
