I have an 8 month old black male lab. I just noticed a haselnut size lump on the right side of the skin of my dog's penis. Initially it looked like it had a white head on it as if it was a pimple but that now went away and there is only a lump. I felt it and it could move around in the area and does not seem to be attached. Could you advise as to what it could be?
All lumps, bumps and new growth of any kind should be checked first by a vet, This is just to be on the safe side.
I have a very lumpy dog, and the times we have been back-and-forth to the vet's with cysts and lipomas and other little bumps for years now! Even when I am 99% sure I know exactly what they are, having had so much previous experience of them, I still take her to the vet first.
Might be a good idea.
