Hi how's i going? I have a few questions that I would-appreciate help with. I own a 130 pound 3.5 yr old great pyr. July of this yr he developed a ump that was concerning to me I took him to the vet and we decided to do a wait and see approach. Fast forward to now,and his lump has gotten signifficantally bigger and other lumps have formed. I, in a panic, took him to the vet on friday.The vet aspirated his lump from july and said the other were harmless and too small to aspirate.
My questions are
1- When the vet did the aspiration he stuck his needle into the lump and said immediately that it was clear which he said was good. He then went into the back and 5 minutes later he said that the aspiration was also clear on the slide which means that it is 100 percent a cyst and that he wasnt even going to send the sample to the lab(he didnt charge us either). Is this correct that since it was clear it's just a benign harmless cyst?
2- if it;s a cyst why is it growing and itching him?
3- If you bump into a cyst hard enough will it turn it cancerous? I tripped on the floor and fell on him(not all my weight) but i stopped my fall with one of y hands and that hand banged hard against his cyst..would that anger the cyst and turn it cancerous?
4- are any lumps to small to aspirate and whe should i recheck this current one?
