My puppy has a large bump near abdomen area

Hi all,

First post here. My son noticed a pink lump on our Lab/Golden/Beagle mix puppy (about 10 and half months old) today near the abdomen area. There was a scab on it that seems to have fallen off.

It seems there is no pain as he doesn't react when I touch it. Doesn't seem much itchy either. I measured it and it's about 3/8th of an inch. It's located on the left side of the stomach just below the rib cage.

Here is a picture -



Could it be skin related that something over the counter could treat? Or something more serious and requires a vet visit?

Thanks for any comments.

My standard advice, always, is when anything appears on your dog, and you are not certain of what it is, or how to treat it, have your Vet check it out, diagnose it, and lay out an appropriate treatment plan.

Took him to the vet - she said it was most likely Histiocytoma (button tumor) and would probably go away on its own in couple of months. She took a sample and checked it under the microscope so I think she is right.

Try to monitor it for a month to see if it will be gone. Hope everything is well for your puppy.
