Hi Doc. My doc has developed this huge lump at the base of his tail just above his bum. What is this? This lump has developed into a huge ball.

Hi Sheran

You need to do diagnostics on the mass to confirm what it is.

Take your dog to the vet and the vet will do a fine needle aspirate of the mass and/or a biopsy.

The cellular material obtained will be stained and analysed with the aid of a microscope. The vet will be able to suggest the treatment of choice on confirmation of the results.

Kind Regards
