Default Histiocytoma

So Monday Duke had a raised bump on his head the next day it opened and it's a very angry looking red it bled slightly on Tuesday and hasn't bled since. Its just very red and prominent. All research leads to a histiocytoma, I have a vet appointment on Monday..do they require surgery more often or do they go away? It looks wet from me applying an otc antibiotic cream, its not pussing. Here is a picture

Any bump that shows up suddenly needs an evaluation. A MCT also often resembles a histiocytoma. I hope it is a benign histio. They usually resolve on their own within a couple of months.

Aww poor Duke, hope it is not a big deal. Kai was limping some last week, I told my daughter she let his nails get too long. So she is trying to shorten them but he now hates his nails being trimmed.

What procedures do vets preform to test if it's a mct or benign? Dukes appointment is Monday morning, fingers crossed..

They can send a sample out to be tested. They usually draw a sample with a needle and put it on a slide.

Hope it turns out benign !
