Q. My dog has a lump on the right side of her abdomen region and I'm wondering what it could be?
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. Thanks for your question. It could be anything from a benign lump (caused by an inflammation or a benign tumor like a lipoma) or something more serious.
The only way to have more informations about it would be to have a feel during a consultation. Your veterinarian may be able to tell you straight away what it is by looking at it or it may need more investigations. Usually an FNA (fine needle aspiration) or a biopsy would be the following steps.
