Lump/bulge On Lower Rib Cage

I'll try to make this succinct. Keith has smallish bulge on his lower rib cage. It began as a pimply/blistery looking thing which grew to the size of a dime. Eventually it scabbed and disappeared. There is a red patch of skin where the pimple/blister was which was, until yesterday, flush with the skin. Now, however, it is beginning to slightly bulge. Also, a few inches to the left of the original incident, a new (reddish) pimple has formed. Any thoughts?

Squishy or hard? Attached to the underlying structure or is it able to be separated? Itchy? Weeping?

Photo link now added to original post. Mostly hard. Not a huge bulge, but it's there. Doesn't appear to be itchy and he pretty much leaves it alone.

If he was my dog, I'd keep an eye on it over the next few days. These dogs can bang themselves up pretty good when they want to. Last week my girl Callie ran over a small weed with stickers and did a number on her back paw.

 

I would also read up on skin growths to see if anything looks similar. If you develop a gut feeling that he needs to be looked at, it's time to see a vet for an office visit.

Me being me, I would probably take him in for a vet opinion sooner rather than later. Most "bad things" are better caught early and small rather than left alone.
