Basset lipomas

Q Ruth asks:

My two 8 yr old bassets have so many lumps that I'm afraid I might miss a serious one. I know to watch for irregular shapes but some lipomas seem to start out irregular and then turn perfectly round. Does the lump always have to be moveable? Thank-you, I get nervous, they must have at least 8 a-piece under their skin but not in neck or groin.

Q Our vet says: Usually benign lumps as you know are moveable, smooth and fairly rounded. I would suggest that you check them monthly and keep a record of their size as well so that you know if they are growing or not. If you feel anxious or unsure about any of the lumps check with your local vet and in any case ask your vet to examine them all when your dog has its annual health check.
