    Default Help, I Think My Dog Has Tumour.

    I have a 6 year old mini foxie, she has a big lump on one of her breast, I think it is tumour, just wonder what is the cost of the removing the lump?

    Anywhere from $200 to $2,000.

    Without knowing exactly what the lump is, no-one can tell you how much fixing it will cost.

    It could be cancerous, it could be a fatty cyst, it could be mastitis... you will need to have her examined by a vet to find out exactly what it is.

    In the first instance you need to take your dog to a Vet for the lump to be checked and the Vet will advise if any action needs to be taken. The action could range from just monitoring the lump if the vet suspects it is a fatty lump (lipoma), doing bloodtests or surgically removing it if the vet recommends this. The vet may recommend an ultrasound or some type of other test(s) or referral to a Vet Specialist. The costs can vary considerably depending on what the Vet finds/recommends, so that is why the first thing you need to do is visit a Vet, so you know what you may be dealing with, both with the condition of your dog and approximate costs involved. Also depending on what Vet finds/recommends, including giving you an idea on costs involved, you may want to consider a 2nd opinion from another vet.

    Good luck with your girl and I hope you get some good news.

    Vet is the best place. Our Roxie x chihuahua had a fatty lumpm on her side, sort of side breast really. It was large, but squishy and easily moved. Our vet stuck a needle in it and then just checked the cells from that. No pain, two seconds and we could rest easy. It fluctuated with her weight, getting harder as she got fatter and loosening again if she lost some.

    Then she had a lump in her jaw, and ghat turned out to be cancer that killed her. I don't want to freak you out, that's just what happened, but my point is it could be anything and only a qualified doctor is going to be able to tell.

    Deffinately would say the vet would be the only person who could give you the answer.

    I was totally shamed a few months ago when I found a lump in Ruby's neck, I started crying and freaking out, Calling my family telling them she might have cancer.

    All very histerical!!!

    After rushing her to the vet it turns out it was a gland, hence the one on the opposite side of her neck in the exact same position and the exact same size!!

    Hope Yours is something similar!!

    I get lumps checked out straight away. Monte had one recently, and just like Ruby's, it was only a gland that was up. He had a teeth cleand and his ears sorted and he was fine again.

    However, Boofy had a wart like lump come up on his back leg near his butt a couple of years ago. It turned out to be a mast cell tumour. Because I noticed it and took him to the Vet staright away, we were able to remove it with clear margins and it was low grade. After this, I check every lump out with the Vet.
