Lump on side of mouth? (Pics Included)

Hello,

I've just found a lump on the side of Sasha's mouth (lower lip) and I'm a bit concerned about it. Wasn't sure how to describe it so here are some pics:





Anyone have any ideas what it is? She's only 10 months old - I hope it's nothing serious . I'll get her to the vets on Monday anyway to get it checked out. Thanks for any info anyone can give

Thanks for replying scorpio and jesterjenn

Took her to the vets today (they were full up yesterday) and he has said that it's a benign puppy tumour. Nothing to worry about unless it gets any bigger/angrier and then we have to take her back to get it removed, otherwise it should disappear on its own.

He also thinks she's about to have her first season

Glad it's nothing to worry about but you always do when you find something like that of course.

As for her season, poor you Mo is in the middle of hers, a total pain in the proverbial

Sorry just spotted this.
Faltcoats can get acne...especially when they are teenagers...perhaps with the vet thinking her season is imminent she is just being a spotty teenager?!!!

Thanks Nippy - I'm not looking forward to her having a season at all, but I've been told that Flatcoats are generally quite clean, so at least that's something!

Thanks Ramble - she did have a bit of puppy acne on her stomach when she was little and I have to say, this looks totally different. The vet didn't seem concerned though - he said it should disappear within 3 weeks. We don't even have to put anything on it, as with it being on her mouth, it would just wash off.

I'm just relieved that she's ok!

Hi all my Spaniel had something similar when she was a pup it took about 5-6weeks to disappear completely it was called a benign histiocytoma or Langerhans (I think) tumour. Think the vets only remove them if they are in an area with very little spare skin or the get sore & infected.
Good luck

Thanks kathryn - yes, a benign histiocytoma, that's exactly what the vet said it is! It's much easier to spell puppy tumour though!
