help! hard lump on my dogs back, is it dangerous?

my dog, a 5-6 year old terrier mix, has had this smallish lump under his skin on his lower back for 2 years when he first got it i squeezed it and it would pop kind of like a pimple under his skin and go away(this happened 2 or 3 times) but it would always come back in the same spot and it would stop popping as well

just recently i’ve noticed it’s grown in size not dramatically but enough for u to notice it when u pet him it’s hard and under his skin not red or purple and there’s no open wound or puss it just feels like a hard sack i don’t think it bothers him when i touch it but i’ve tried to squeeze in and he doesn’t like that (obviously it probably feels like a pinch)

i’m rly scared i’m 18 and i saved him from an abusive home he’s had all his shots n stuff but i don’t have money to take him to a vet if it’s not serious please help

Maybe just dont use an apostrephe, it would be easier to read. Just a word of warning- if its a sebacious cysts filled with liquid which it sounds like it could be, theres a risk if you pop them & the content gets on the surrounding skin- they can actually multiply. So best to leave it alone. Now its hard you could try roileys salve but dont let the dog lick it. Its not a natural product. However, I read up about it on the web site & its designed to draw out impurities from the skin. It drew out my dogs cyst- but that was after I had it checked by the vet & they said 2 options, one- they'l remove it for 2-300$ kiwi or get a sample & send it to be checked for cancer for around 100$ kiwi. So I got it checked it wasnt cancer. If you want to see the actual lump you can do a search on all posts using the icons at the top. Also squeezing it you risk infection as you are creating an opening. Best to not mess around with them.
