Magic's Lump- updated
See the lump? We don't know what it is. We know its not a fluid filled cyst, or a piece of foreign matter, at least nothing that shows on the xray. A tumor? An inflamation? Its a pretty firm defined lump, so inflamation is unlikely. The vet was unable to extract anything with a needle, so we have 2 options-wait and see what it does, or have it removed now. Thoughts? I am leaning toward NOW.
Updated- Taryn asked if it was sudden or slow. Last fall/winter he had a similar lump, appeared sudden, then faded away. At the time I thought maybe spider/bug bite? This one also appeared suddenly, but is not fading-instead it became hard, and possibly larger. And its been there now for 2 weeks, which is what made me nervous.
