Unhappy Synovial cyst

Hello all.

In the last month, I realised that my baby has a small lump on his left shoulder. Seems to be right where the bone is on his outer chest. I had been keeping an eye on it for the last few weeks and noticed that it has been growing. It is still very small, marble size, and not noticable at first.

Therefore, I took him to my vet yesterday (who is actually my step-brother) and it seemed to him like a synovial cyst. I oped to have a sample taken to be analysed and while he was asparating, a bloody liquid came out. At that moment, the vet tech suggested it may be a hematoma whereas the vet seemed to think it was cystic.

I will get the results back in 3 days. I have been trying to do some research to get more information. He told me we may be able to leave it, however depending on the results, we may want to have it removed because it is so close to the joint and may cause other health issues.

I'm trying to figure out what could have caused it, and the only correlation I can find is either his new front clip harness that rubs on that shoulder (although there is absence of external irritation), or bumping into the door on the way in the house due to boisterousness.

Either way, I am wondering if anyone else has any information that can shed light on what may have caused it, what my options for treatment may be, how serious it can be, whether it can be recurrent and I'm curious to know whether this can impact his conformation showing next spring?

Thank you so much in advance!
Danielle

do you know what the vWD status is for your pup?

it could be a hematoma from bumping into something.

young dogs get all kinds of bumps and bruises.

I don't have the exact status, I'd have to ask the breeder as I'm unsure whether the test was done. But I know there was no concern at all when his tail and ears were done.

Thanks Darkevs
