I noticed a scab on my furball a few weeks ago and figured he just got a cut from rough play. However, it looks bigger and now I'm thinking it might be something else. He's almost 5, has an adrenal implant which is due to be replaced later this year, and he's a happy, loving guy.
I don't remember how to add pics. Can someone remind me?

Whoa! lol. Did not resize so a little surprised. Just tried out Post image. That was easy. It opened up my pics in my computer and I picked one. I pasted the highlighted formula in the box that said ----Hotlink for forums here
When a mammal gets a cut in their body, the scab seals it but there's still empty space inside. The body does not like empty space, so while it heals the body will fill it with fluids which will make it bigger. Sometimes it's just that, other times it can be just blood which is fine too, other times it can by lymphoma. Don't be scared though, if you want to be very precautious, get the lump palpated and sampled by a vet. Where is the lump? Can we have a clear picture of it too? Thanks!
