weird red lump on dogs hind leg?

Hi everyone,
i have a quick question, i have found a unusual red lump on my dogs hind leg it is about the size of a walnut its like some kind of tumor. he is quite young at only 11months so im really concerned about it, have any of you guys seen this before. i spoke to my uncle who has boarding kennels (so he had a lot of experience with dogs) and he told me that its quite common for older dogs to get those kind of lumps but he has never seen it on such a young dog,
any ideas?

anyway i'll let u know how it goes, thanks!!

well went to vet, she says its some kind or tumor but not cancer she thinks however she wants to remove it a.s.a.p as she says because its growing so fast if we wait to remove it it could become very large and then there wouldn't be enough skin to close the wound after removal. so he goes in on wednesday, she wanted to put him to sleep for the surgery but i said no cause he was only put asleep in january for neutering and he is only 11months so i deffinitly dont want him put to sleep twice in his first year so we agreed she will give him a sedative and local anesthic so hopefully there wont be any problems, i'll keep you posted
