Has any one experienced this with their dog?
Jager had his rear leg amputated back in the Spring of this year.  He did four rounds of chemo and last one was 6/29/17

In the past month he has a spot that I thought was a boil or a large pimple.  But now i can see it looks similar to the tumor he had before.

He was diagnosed with Anaplastic Sarcoma with high grade in transit metastasis.  We did a few scans before 4th ultrasound and they seemed to think everything was fine.

I know at the first scan prior to amputation they said he had enlarged lymph nodes.

Money is tight and I know I have to take him back to the vet, but has anyone had this happen before?

Hi and welcome! Sounds like Jager is doing great overall, that's awesome!

That lump could be anything at all and hopefully nothing related to the cancer but there's only one way to find out. Let your vet know your money situation from the get go and they'll try to keep the cost down. A needle aspirated should be able to decipher it and they're usually under $100 for that test. 

Try not to panic, most times these things turn out to be nothing serious but please don't wait ok?

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
