Default Bumps under skin on front leg

After my Boxer has started to limp around on his right leg, I have noticed that he has a bump underneath his skin on his right leg also. Could this be cancerous?

My plan is to take him to the vet in the next couple of days and she what she says.

Is the bump moveable or hard and fixed?

It is fixed, and it will be kind of hard to take a picture, since it is under the skin.

I'm glad you are taking him to the vet, the appt should be made sooner than later do not wait. Not to scare you but a hard fixed lump on a limb is something that needs to be checked as soon as possible. My Gouda had osteosarcoma on her rear leg. It was a hard fixed lump and she started with limping. I hope it is nothing but I wouldnt wait to have it checked

How old is the dog?
