In this excellent blog post by Dr. Nancy Kay, author of Speaking For Spot, she poses the question:

Does finding a new growth mean that you must see your veterinarian right away? Not necessarily. Say that you’ve just spotted a new bump in your dog’s skin that is the size of a small pea. She is due for her annual physical examination in three months. Must you go rushing in this week with this new finding, or can it wait the three months? The answer depends on the behavior of this newly discovered growth.

Thanks for posting this Jerry, I will have to read the entire blog post……I do have to say, though, with my personal experience with Labs, and ESPECIALLY Polly, I have become an extremely anxious, overly nervous-Nelly when it comes to lumps and bumps……my poor Pearl has already become the unwilling participant in periodic “lump and bump” searches……my husband thinks I’m nuts most of the time. Polly had more way more cancerous ones than not, so I just get a bit more uneasy and frightened now. Plus, I am certain that all our pets are never immune to developing cancer, even at a young age. ( Still trying to fight my pessimistic tendencies…..)

Anyway, hoping for a better life for my sweet Pearl…….I know cancer will probably take her from me too, I just want it to wait till she is 20 years old or so…….

Love,
Bonnie & Angel Polly

Nothing wrong with being overly nervous when it comes to lumps and bumps! It pays off if one of them is serious, which hopefully will never ever be the case for Pearl.
