Lump on groin , swelling on testicles , pus from penis
Hello, my dog is 11.5 years old ,mid sized and I check his body daily , the day before yesterday I discovered a lump near the bottom of the penis on the side, (see the picture 1) the lump was warm and it should have came and grew in within 24 hrs because I checked his that area the night before that. Next I called the vet but before his visit his testicles got a bit swollen , I do not have a picture of his swollen testicles, and pus started coming out of his penis. The vet came in and he told me that the lump felt like it was a tumor.and he told me that he had some sort of infection. So he started treating him with anti-inflammatory and antibiotics , now on the day 3 since I discovered the lump the swelling is gone there was still pus coming from the penis the vet tried to get it all out and gave him more anti-inflammatory and antibiotics and this is what it looks like now. The lump is still there I don't think that it has grown. The doc said that once the infection is gone we'll try to treat the tumor. He also said that the infection could be a result of an injury.
What do you guys think that lump is ? if it's a tumor , it should've been growing gradually but it just showed up one day without notice and I think the lump is related to infection not to an injury. I didn't really saw my dog get hurt or on in pain.
All this time my dog has been eating well but feels a bit down maybe because of the medications.
Help me ,tell me what do you think that lump is, I live in in India it's very hard to find the diagnostics for animals here.
Thanks in advance
