    Not necessarily.
    Yea Myf, it was directed at you.
    You hit a nerve and I do apologise.

    In humans there can be 300 or so reasons why lymph nodes, lumps and bumps can appear. Only rarely is it diagnosed as lymphoma.

    We get so many on my cancer forum who post about lumps and bumps, rarely is it that.
    This is not my cancer forum.
    I have lymphoma.

    Hugs.

    I understand Di
    As you said, lumps and bumps appear anywhere and everywhere and can be absolutely anything. I could have listed off 20 things it could be, but narrowed it down to my 'best guess'.
    The OP wanted opinions, and that was mine

    Di, im not assuming anything. The OP wanted ideas on what it could be, and thats my idea.
    I said judging by where it is, it could be Lymphoma. Yeah it could be anything, and it also could be Lymphoma.
    Without seeing a photo, I can't give an accurate guess, what would you rather me have said?

    "Aw, its probably nothing, don't worry about it."
    I guess if it's lymphoma, it can wait until Monday. 2 days won't make any difference at all.
    Fingers crossed it's just a cyst.

    I know in staffys, fat lumps are very common. My mums dog has them everywhere, been tested and they are all just fat lumps. The vet told her that if the lump moves freely, kind of hard to explain. if you can wobble it and it moves then its most likely just a fat lump its when they are stiff there is more to wory about.

    well I took him to the vet who thought that it was probably a grass seed or a abcess so gave me 10 days worth of antibiotics, she didnt think it would be cancer due the quickness of it appearing and growing.

    After 10 days on the antibiotics nothing changed so left it another week, I am now having my friend look at it tonight who is a vet and is going to put a needle in it and take some samples as it has nearly doubled in size more like a cricket ball now and it is starting to irritate him.

    To look at him you would see it as he is sharpei x staffy he has a large amount on unused skin under his neck so it is sitting in there but you can now start to define the lump as it has grown so much. I really hope it isnt cancer as this dog has been through so much, I found him on the side of the road with the worst case of demodex, he had no hair and was covered in blood, he smelt like death. It has taken 18 mths and he has only just grown back all his hair bar a patch on his rump so fingers crossed he will be ok
