I just noticed a small bump growing out of the top of the eye socket on my less than a year Pug. Is this normal? I am pretty worried cause I just had one Pug put down for Mass Cell Tumors Cancer and this looks like a red bump growing. Any comments on this?

My puppy has one on her head. My vet also said it would go away on its own. He said if it doesn't go away in a month or so they'd remove it, but it's best to let it resolve on it's own because then the dog builds antibodies to it and they'll be immune to it from now on. If you surgically remove it, there's a chance they can reoccur.
