Lump on shoulder

My 14 year oldCollie  has a lump just behind her shoulder. If you go up the bone of the leg to the top of the shoulder it is just behind and follows the shoulder lengthwise about 6 cm and is about 2cm wide. she has been tender there for a while, but it is only today i found the lump when she turned a bit sharpish as I brushed her. She has not got a limp. The lump is not attached to the shoulder.

It's impossible for me to say what this lump is. It needs to be checked out by a vet.
It could be benign, something like a fatty tumor (lipoma). If so it may or may not need to be removed. But if it is causing any discomfort, it might be better to have it taken off. If it is cancerous, then it will need to be removed as quickly as possible. Go get it checked, soon as you can.
