Default Lump that looks like a Raspberry...

We have 5 year old White Boxer who has developed a thumb nail size lump that looks like a raspberry. Sometimes it will bleed if he licks at it. It has gotten bigger over the last couple of weeks so we took him into the Vet today. They are going to remove it which I am very happy about but am curious if this has happen to anyone elses boxer and what the outcome was. Any information would be GREATLY appreciated...

I may be wrong - my memories not too good! (but I think Dianne - Grammie had a similar problem with one of her pups recently. She may come in with some answers. My last dog had several lumps and bumps removed over his lifetime of all different sizes and colour - he lived until he was sixteen. He wasn't a boxer but I would think it would apply to all breeds.

Are they going to do a biopsy on the removed lump - that will give you for definite the answers you want!

I think that all of mine have had them at one time or the other. I don't really stress about them. It is good that you are getting removed though.

I'm a worrier so I'd have any changing or bleeding lumps removed and biopsied. Many times it's nothing to worry about but why take a chance? Good luck and let us know how the vet visit goes.
Welcome to the forum btw and we'd love to see pics *

I could almost guarantee that it is the same as this pic.



If so, Ringer had it on his paw from an infected cut and Rudy had one on his chin from an infected zit. Both cleared up in about two weeks with simple washing after each outdoor adventure and feeding and then after cleaning, I put antibiotic ointment on it. *I used Neosporin + Pain because it was obviously painful and it seemed to help a little.

here's vetties. *i'm sure hers would have bled too from her pulling if i hadn't had it removed. *he just hemostated it down near her belly and used a surgical razor knife to remove it. *said she didn't even need anesthesia, because it was so quick. *he cauterized it and that was that. *seeing him do it, i could probably do it myself next time *


the thing i've noticed about benign lumps with my guys is they don't have a blood supply going to them...just flesh. *still always best to get a vets opinion.

wow dan - that started from an infected cut? *i'll have to watch for the start of the next rasberry to see if injury is the cause.

Grammie that does kind of look like what our little guy has but they are actually going to have him asleep for it. He only has one testicle so that is being removed at the same time. I am so glad I added a post in here because I feel much more at ease about it all.
Thank you!!!
