Default 6 month old pup has a lump

Hi all! I am a new member to this forum. My pup is 6 months old and very frisky. I just noticed a small lump on his left leg. It looks some what irritated, a tad red. Not sure if he cut himself when he was running around or what it is. Any idea what this might be? Should I take him to the vet or give it a week or so? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Can you post a pic? At his age I would be more inclined to say it's nothing serious, but with this breed I personally like to get bumps and lumps looked at. If you can post a pic someone might be able to chime in on what they think it is.

I was thinking of waiting a week or two then taking him to the vet if it is still there.

I really don't know what to think of that one. Can you tell if there's fur growing in it or is that the fur around it that's covering it? Has it changed at all since you first noticed it? My boy Riley used to get hystiocytomas a lot, but his looked very different from that.

There is no hair growing in it. I just noticed it a few days before I posted this and it hasn't changed at all. I am going to take him to the vet in a week or so, was just hoping for some insight on what it might be before we go.

Update on Presley. The vet took some fluids from his lump and said they are very common for boxer pups and should go away within two months. Of course I need to make sure there are no changes in its size or color but what a relief. Thanks for all your advice.
