Kali recently developed an odd shaped lump on her rib cage near the spine. I took her to the vet a little worried, the fat cysts I've felt on other dogs (and the one on her chest) are uniform, fairly soft and just feel different.
The vet says she thinks it's a mast cell tumor...or an infected bug bite.

I should get results from the pathology lab in 4-5 days.

Let us know! Let's hope for the the latter. I was hoping for the same thing ~6 years ago, but the (*&(**() "C" reared it's ugly head. I think I still have a bunch of links if you need them.. Hugs to Kali and let's hope for the best news.

You and Kali will be in my thoughts. She is too young!!

I have my fingers crossed and my crew has all their paws crossed for Kali to have good results.

Lots of good vibes coming your way, Kristen. Hope this turns out to be nothing serious.

It's a mast cell tumor... I asked if it was benign and after a long pause the vet said there's really no such thing.

She goes in today for initial bloodwork to see (I guess) if there are cancer cells in her blood. Luckily for us a super well known canine cancer specialist Martin Goldstein (wrote "The Nature of Animal Healing") is super close. I'm making an appt as soon as his office opens this morning. Hope and pray that it hasn't spread. Any doggie cancer survivors here?
