Re: lump in scrotum


Any unexplained lump should be checked as soon as it is found, were he intact I would say it probably was a tumour and not to worry as very few are malignant however as he is castrated it could be anything from a hernia to a tumour or anything in between, but if it has appeared and the vet is unaware it should be checked.

Re: lump in scrotum


thanks guys, I agree with all you have said. But I am trying to calm a 78 year old widow, who's life is Sandy her dog. I will tell her what you have said and maybe it will put her mind at rest. Her son took Sandy to the Vet but when anything like this happens I dont get the full story because she doesn't hear all what is said and I only get an abridged version. Sandy is due to go back to the vet next wed and I guess thats for a biopsy!

Re: lump in scrotum


I understand how frightened your Aunt must be but leaving it or ignoring it will not make it go away. Even if it were the worst possible thing she can think of the chances are it can be dealt with and no problems, so she must get it sorted just in case it needs sorting quickly as would a hernia or a tumour. But it could just be fat or a cyst so tell her not to jump to conclusions till the vet has investigated.

Re: lump in scrotum


Hi
My dog Jake has exactly the same problem, being a castrated dog with a golfball lump where his scrotum would be. Ive got him booked into the vet next week and have to wait until then. Could you give me a follow up on your aunt's rescue dog? What was the outcome?

Thanks
Chris.

Re: lump in scrotum


Hi. Replying as a followup to my own question in case anyone else has the same problem and Googles this page...

I had the golfball sized lump removed from his scrotum and examined. The results came back as a "Spindle Cell Tumor" which is harmlesss! (thank goodness!) It does have a tendancy to come back and regrow in the same place but it is not milignant and doesnt spread throughout the body. The vet suggested it grew from the nerve cell wall from when he was castrated about ten years ago.

Currently he's got some nasty looking stiches between his legs and he's wearing the lampshade around his head to prevent him picking at the wound. I'm very glad to have him back!
