My dog has a bump on his face?

Postby albrecht » Sat Jan 05, 2013 10:01 am

I was playing tug-of-war with my chihuahua when I noticed a small bump in between his eyes ( the space between his eyes). I dont remember him getting hurt or anything. It is not bleeding or anything its just a bump. When I try to touch it, he cries. What could this be? Any ideas on how he couldve gotten this?

During the course of grooming, playing with, or handling your dog, you may discover a lump or bump or or beneath the skin. To learn what it may be, see this table on lumps or bumps or or beneath the skin.

Abscess: A painful collection of pus at the site of a bite or puncture wound.

Basal cell tumor: Solitary nodule, usually on a narrow base or stalk. Round, normally hairless, and may be ulcerated. Found on the head, neck, and shoulders of older dogs.

Ceruminous gland adenoma: A pinkish-white dome-shaped growth in the ear canal less than 1 centimeter in size. May become ulcerated and infected.

Epidermal inclusion cyst: A firm lump beneath the skin. May discharge cheesy material and become infected.

Hematoma: A collection of clotted blood beneath the skin; often involves the ear flaps.

Histiocytoma: Rapidly growing dome-shaped (buttonlike) growth found anywhere on the body, usually in young adults.

Lipoma: Smooth round or oblong growth beneath the skin; feels somewhat soft.

Mast cell tumor: Solitary or multiple growths usually found on the trunk, perineum, and legs. More prevalent in certain breeds, including Boxers, Golden Retrievers, Bulldogs, and Boston Terriers.

Melanoma: A brown or black pigmented nodule found in areas of dark skin. Growths in mouth and nailbeds usually are malignant.

Perianal gland tumor: A solitary or multinodular growth in the perineum around the anus. Occurs most often in older intact males.

Sebaceous adenoma: Also called sebaceous cyst. Smooth, pink, wartlike growth less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter. Most common on the eyelids and limbs. Occurs in older individuals (average age 10). Very common in Poodles and Cocker Spaniels.

Skin papillomas: These grow out from the skin and may look like a wart. Not painful or dangerous
Soft-tissue sarcomas: Ill-defined or well-demarcated masses of varying size and location. Often slow growing.

Squamous cell carcinoma: A nonhealing gray or reddish-looking ulcer found on the belly, scrotum, feet, legs, lips, or nose. May resemble a cauliflowerlike growth.

Transmissible venereal tumors: Ulcerated, often multiple cauliflower-like growths on the genitalia of both sexes.
