I took my dog to the park the other day and when I got back I noticed a bump on her nose. It definitely was not there before we left but I am worried that it's either cancer or a tick. The lump has not got bigger but it's just sitting there. It's not got worse or bigger or its not bothering her! She's 13 yrs old this Friday so I have not ruled anything out.

Any advice?

The photo is too blurry to see clearly. If it came up suddenly, that wouldn’t be consistent with cancer. It doesn’t look like a tick, I wouldn’t expect that to be red and you should be able to see the body if that’s what it is.

If it doesn’t go away in a few days, have a word with your vet.

I've had dogs with lumps in the past, some dogs just randomly seem to get them and they're fine. If you're that worried then go to the vet but the likelihood is it nothing serious. However, as that age these things will become more common.
