    Lump on......
    Bellabsmommy posted:
    I have a two year old French Bulldog and I noticed to day that he has a larg red lump on the one side of his penis. He is neutered. And relatively healthy. Any ideas? He is constantly begging for belly rubs so I am sure it is fairly recent - I especially would have noticed during bath time when I was scrubbing him. Any thoughts would be appreciated - calling the vet when I get home.

    Bulldogs and Belly Rubs - sounds like a perfect recipe for Valentine's Day!

    But seriously, I'd have that bump checked out. It's probably nothing, but there can be serious skin tumors in that sensitive region. Further, you want to have it checked out when it's small so that biopsy/surgery can be performed. Too often I see patients whose owners waited too long - with disastrous results.

    Good luck and keep us updated.
