Thanks very much for your replies! She is about 7 years old, and actually, I made a mistake saying she had no health issues. She had what we thought was a cyst before (as our vet at the time diagnosed it). It was there for 3 years until at daycare, it was ruptured playing with a dog. So we had to remove it and when they did, my new vet found it was actually a mast cell tumor (grade 2). It was on the back of her neck. Vet said it was pretty big but that they got the edges but they didnt send it all to the lab to verify that which upset me. They only sent a little piece.
I've only touched it after I soaked it and it was soft, even the black ones, but I thought that it looked like bits from her pad when it is dry. She doesn't lick or scratch it. I dont have a collar but I watch her a lot and she doesn't touch it. She just never seems to bother her injuries with licking or scratching.
Since the vet on Wed it has swelled quite a bit. It was just a little hard spot in the corner of her pad and 2 days later it looks like that. I'm going to take her back on Tuesday instead of Wed. I'll keep you posted on what happens.
