Default Questionable lump?

Hello everyone! I noticed some lumps on my boxer's side (by his ribs) and his chest. They kind of popped out of nowhere. Here are some pics...anyone seen this before and might know what it is?

They could be histiocytomas but Boxers make lumps and some can be bad. I suggest a vet visit for an a look-see and an aspiration. How old is your dog?

I definitely recommend getting a vet's opinion. The internet is great, but when it comes to the health of your loved ones you should definitely see an expert

It looks fungal, almost ring worm like. I agree, it's definitely something your vet needs to see.

Hopefully those lumps were nothing serious. I am constantly looking for lumps and bumps.
