I've marked ro spots where these tiny bumps have formed witha green dot. Imput so e tape on the spots so I coukd mark them once I took the photos. You can't see the bumps in the photo, but you can see the green dots drawn over the tape. There will be a total.of five green dots in different pictures.

The one on her head is about the size of a firm pea and has been there for a couple of months with no change, or maybe an almost imperceptible tiny, tiny vigger.

The one on her right hip/rump area...same desription as head bump.

One her side...same as head and hip ones, except a tad smaller. As best I can tell, has not changed size.

The one on the middle of her back is new and sudden in just the past two weeks. A second one on her side I just discovered TODAY and it was not there a couple of days ago!! Needless to say, finding two more within a couple of weeks has me startled.

No apparent pain when I poke and prod them. They are under the skin, and move a little tiny bit, but certainly don't move like a marble kind of cyxt bump would under the skin...if that makes any sense. No discharge, no visible irritation, redness, etc...just a firm bump under the fur and under the skin.

How should I ask my Vet to proceed?

She's not even three yet. Well, almost three...December 29th!

WITH HEARTFELT APPRECIATION ALWAYS!!!

Oh Myrtle! What have you been up to? You're not to worry you're Mum, okay! Nothing terribly useful to offer, I'm afraid, just hoping your vet can give you an answer and set your mind at rest. Elsie does have a similar sounding lump in her neck, which she's had for a year or so, at least, about the size of a pea. It hasn't changed and the vet is completely unconcerned about it. Is some sort of bite possible? An allergy? A lipoma? I know you'll have thought of all this yourself. Mainly just wanting to send you a hug.

We hate bumps of any kind! Our Doberman would get a Follicular cyst about that size. (She has been at the bridge for 9 years.)

We have the love for all animals not just kitties;)

Just wanted to say we are sending pawsitive energy and prayers for you both! 

Eating chocolate with you;)and sending hugs!

Ollie had a bump about that size a while ago. Aspiration showed it was just debris filled. Application of an antibiotic ointment cleared it right up. Gus was like that, too. Over the years he had sebaceous cysts from time to time, but they were nothing serious. Hope your vet dheck comes out well.

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

I don't know... seems a little young for fatty tissue and I think that is more pliable! Maybe bug bites? Lots of them? 

HUGS! and keep us posted!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Now it's our turn to say ... B R E A T H E!

Wyatt had a bump like that. It was a ZIT! Actually, an impacted hair follicle.

Hopefully MM is just going through her bad-skin-teenage-years.

We have our paws crossed for ZITS!

Yeah, what Jerry said, B R E A T H E . . .

Since she's not licking, biting or scratching at them, that's a plus.

Stay calm and think of Myrtle's Halloween costume for 2017, big-grin, that is if they make it big enough:

Harmony became a Tripawd on 10/21/14 (MCT). She left us way too soon on 11/1/14.

I know to Breathe.  Snickers was just a cyst and they did a needle aspirate to make sure they told me to watch it.  I was taking her in for her leg and since I had noticed it felt like it was growing to me I had them look at it.  That is why we had it removed.  Bosch has a little tiny bump (pimple like) probably a hair follicle its not growing. 

I know you are freaking out

Hi Sally,

I have nothing at all to add other than another dose of hugs and best wishes and love.

Milo had fatty lipomas as he aged.... flatter and wider than peas.  Darcy is 15 weeks old and there's no way to give her a full body search yet.... she's still too busy biting my hands when I try!  I do have 19 and 21 year old sons..... zits, impacted follicles, and similar skin things sound familiar.  (It's amazing how often my family's health issues align with the dogs.....)

Peace & Love,

Jenifer, Milo, & puppy Darcy

These small subcutaneous bumps are common in short-haired larger breeds such as mastiffs and are benign.  Sometimes they will get big and the skin gets red and they can ooze black cheesy stuff.  My Dogue Loki had to have a few removed.  

Just to be sure I would have your vet aspirate a few.  They are easy to diagnose.  Your main rule out would be mast cell cancer  but that is not common in this breed.  Fatty lumps are larger and softer and rarely occur on the head.

One side effect of this journey is being super hyper vigilant about everything going on with our babies. We can make ourselves crazy worrying! Remember the advice "Be More Dog ". I can't remember, but you may have been the one to come up with that! Myrtle looks like she's saying "why mom, why all the green dots?". Let's PLAY! Enjoy the holidays and try not to worryheart

Right front leg amputation at age 7 for osteosarcoma 10/6/16. Taken too soon 6/12/17. Read about our journey here:
