Unhappy HELP! My pit has a large Lump/mass!?



Hi Everyone, this is my first post and I am very worried and need some help/info!

About 2 days ago I noticed the my pitbull has a large lump/mass under his armpit. I touched it and it felt as if its filled with blood or a liquid. Its squishy not hard. My dog didn't react when I touched it, as if it didn't hurt him as I touched it. Now this morning I checked up on him and fed him before I left the house to go to work and the lump/mass was slightly red and bleeding a little. The hair has also fallen from the lump/mass area. I don't know what it could be. Please help with a little more info on this, thank you!

Please take him to the vet. It could be so many different things from an abscess to a tumor etc.

I bet it is an abscess but I agree a vet visit is needed. If it is tumor removing it now is a great idea. I have had several taken off my dogs over the years it is fairly simple.
Let us know what the vet says and welcome to GP.com

The cost will depend on what exactly it is and the vet you go to...

I hope it is nothing major and your pup is back to good health asap!

Let us know what happens please!

it can be as cheap as 150 for an abscess or as expensive as 300 for a tumor removal, well that is what it would cost here. It really depends but if you go in just for an office visit (around 30-50) they can tell what is it and give you a heads up. It if it a tumor your can save up for it and get it take off in a few weeks, if it is an abscess you will need to take care of it as soon as possible.

Each vet is different but at least you have an idea of what costs might be.

You could always call around to your local vet offices and find a decent one. Like performance said it all depends.

Make sure if it is costly, some vets will alow you to set up payment plans. You could try paying the bill with 50$ here and there, untill its paid off.

I had the same issue with my last pit. Granted he was older when it started. He started to get cists (er spelling?). they were like sacks of blood/puss filled skin. Some would pop before i could get him in and made a mess of my carpet. So far out of the 5 apbt's i have owned in my life 2 of them had this same issue when they were older.

Best of luck to you!!

I hope the surgery goes well and they get clean margins on it .
