Strange Lump


Recommended Posts

Arwen has a strange lump on the back of her "wrist". That area where you can feel all the tendons and stuff going to the foot. It is hard and doesn't move but isn't attached to a bone. She had a fall jumping over the garden fence (2 ft. high) and skinned her wrists badly on the flagstones. The vet doesn't think the lump is related to the fall. We just noticed it while cleaning her up. Vet was not able to aspirate any cells from it. She's removing it on Monday. Just wondering what this could be. It feels so wierd. Almost like a bone out of place but there is no pain.

Wow weird. Igby has the same thing in between 2 of his ribs. It appeared out of nowhere. It's hard, but not attached to the lung or bone. It's in the sub-q space because his skin moves over it but then it also moves between the bones. We're keeping an eye on it. They think it's a reaction to the lyme disease vacc he just had but I'm not buying that because it not in the right place. No painful. Definitely not a lypoma. Vet couldn't get anything when they tried to aspirate either. They told me to keep an eye on it and see if it changes. Then if it still hasn't gone away in a few weeks they said they'd take it off. I don't know if I want to wait that long.

 

I'm definitely curious as to what your vet finds out when they take it off and send it out.

You know, another dog that came off of Igby's haul had similar thing happen, but it was present when he came in and I noticed it right off the truck. I contacted GPA Daytona and they said it was from a vaccine and it should reabsorb...Same place - back along the ribs.

Gabriel had one of these on his right wrist. It got larger as we had him longer and he was exercised more. First needle aspirate showed no cancer and a second could not be obtained. Ended up being an old racing injury that was aggravated by increased exercise.

 

Here's hoping that is what Arwen has.......

Hmmm... well... I guess I'll keep an eye on it.

 

Did they xray Igby? My Trevor had a strange lump between 2 of his ribs unexpectedly, it turned out to be OS.

No X-ray because it moves so it's not attached to the bone.

 

Sorry, Arwen, for partially hijacking your story... I'm still very interested to see what the vet finds.
