Wart on the ear?

Hi!
I was just hoping to get a secondary opinion on what this thing (see pic) on my four legged friends ear was. It appeared about a month ago and it seems to be (very) slowly growing.

I asked the vet (when we went for some shots) and she said it was probably a wart and that I should wait and see. The thing is, it was kind of a causal exam due to the fact that we where there for vaccines not an ear exam.

So I was hoping that someone had seen this before and could reassure me that it is in fact a simple wart. Or if not, advice me of what it might be.

That looks a lot like one of the types of warts listed on this site: Dog Warts - Types and Treatment

How old is your dog?

That it does, and it looks like the benign kind too

All though, he is just over a year old and that site states that it usually occur in "aging skin"...

Wonder if it is a histiocytoma....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histiocytoma_(dog)

I don't know why this site won't pull up right but all you have to do it click and enter the "Did you mean: Histiocytoma (dog)" and the correct info pulls up.

Could be. Seems like the "wait a few month" approach apply whatever it is. And that is after all what the doc ordered.

Thanks!

thought I'll update this thread and tell what it turned out to be (just in case any one else find them self in my situation)...

I ended up going to a vet-hospital kind of thing (not my around the corner 2 days a week vet) and got a full exam. They concurred with Linda H diagnostics but opted to remove the thing/tissue and send it to analyses. 10 days later they confirmed that it was a benign tumor (histiocytoma).

Thanks for the update, might be educational to other owners of young dogs.

Histiocytoma would have been my bet, too--came in on this one late.

Just a note, not all histiocytomas resolve on their own or behave in a benign way, and there are some dangerous other types of growths that can resemble simple histiocytomas, so everyone reading along--always have a good vet assess these "bumps."

I think any lump or bump out of the ordinary should be tested. I couldn't be looking at that all day and not be worried sick.

Stormy had one of those histiocytoma's as well. I had some of her lipomas removed while she was under for that as well.

Glad yours turned out well!

Thank goodness it was benign! I looked quite a bit like my Am Staff's stage 1 Mast-Cell tumor... The vet thought maybe Histiocytoma but it turned out to be cancer. She is fine now that it is gone. I am glad it all turned out well.
