Mass under rectal area...

Species: dog | Category: medical-surgical | Submitted: 5 August 2007 05:12PM | viewed 5949 times
Q Ing asks:

Diddy has had a protruding mass under the rectal area since as long as I can remember. At first, I thought it was normal but he just recently got a hair cut and when you look at his rear, it's protruding. I picked him up to feel it and it feels like it's part of his private that extends that far back to where you can see it protruding from his rear. Is that normal? Or can it be some kind of cyst or tumor attached to that area growing outward?

Q Our vet says: It is difficult to tell from the photograph as often so much is gained from palpation of these masses. It could be any of the things you mention and a hernia might be a possibility too. This mass should be investigated further by your local vet who will be able to perform a proper examination and let you know if any further tests are necessary to find out what this lump is.
