Cancer? - May 28th 2014, 05:03 AM

I feel like I'm being paranoid, bit I'm constantly worried that my dog is getting cancer. She's around ten years old, a salt and pepper color minature schnauzer and I've noticed a big lump on her side. At first its hard to notice, but then you see how one side seems to bulge out a bit more. Its huge. In addition, the skin on the top of her back seems to be flaking. I can't see it well, but I can feel little bumps and it smells awful. Is this a skin conditiin on its own? Has anyone else expierenced anything like this? My parents don't want to spend the money to see a vet so I'm groping in the dark right now.


The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love. Whether it's a world or a relationship everything has it's time. And everything ends.

So long as she's eating normally and feeling okay, I don't think you have to see a vet immediately. Just make sure you keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get bigger. It's possible that it's just a benign tumor, since those things are common in older animals.

I, too, have a miniature schnauzer and he is almost three years old. Just like what the above user said, just keep an eye on the lump to make sure it does not increase in size. If anything changes with the lump, take your dog to the vet as soon as possible. Here is a link that you should take a look at: http://www.schnauzers-rule.com/dog-lumps.html
