Whiskey had a lump appear that I assumed was a bug bite but after a week or so it got larger and I took him to the vet to have it tested. She used the needle test and she's sending it out for testing but she thinks it's a mast cell tumor.

Please send my boy good vibes and hope for histiocytoma instead >_<

Hoping and praying it is something minor like a histiocytoma. Baron has had 3 since we got him. Where is it located? I think Baron's dermatologist told me that histio's were more common in younger dogs than mast cells.

I think the odds are more in favor of a histio vs mast cell. Hope you get fantastic news. The waiting sucks though :(

It's on his outer thigh. Started as a very small bump under the skin and within a week that sucker was the size of a nickel. At first the skin looked normal and now it's sort a different color and texture as well as very hard.

Yeah... the last thing I'd want for this boy is to have to undergo another surgery. Ive had him around 7 months and he's already had a broken toe and had to have a baby tooth removed. Poor guy has no luck whatsoever.
