Hi, I noticed a small bump at the base of my dogs tail about 2 months ago. It hasn't grown, gotten irritated, or really bothered him at all but it hasn't gone away. Has anyone else experienced this with their dog? Attached is a picture. He doesn't seem to notice its there.

It's impossible to say.

really, it could be anything from a small lipoma to a mole, skin-cancer, or a blocked skin-gland. :eek:
It might be important, or completely inconsequential - we can't tell. U need to make a vet-appt, & get it examined.

the vet might want a needle aspiration to look at under the 'scope, a small biopsy, or just look at it under magnification.
Hopefully it's just a little bump, & needs no Tx other than to keep an eye on it for changes - color, size, texture, if it bleeds, hurts, etc.

paws crossed,
- terry
