Lumps on elbow joints are usually Hygroma's. Not painful not cancerous growths from laying on hard surfaces. Better to check the vet to be sure but my 5 month old Mastiff had one and it was not Lipoma

We have a black lab named julz she is 9 years old she had a lump on her front left leg took her to our vet and he drained it as it turned out there was cancer cells he said we would have to keep an eye on it cause if it would start bleeding again the only thing would safe the leg would be amputate the leg course we said if it came to that we would just put her down on top of that she is now considered a diabetic so she now requires two insulin shots a day but for now she has loss her eye sight which is so sad so just wonder anyone else is experiencing this with there dog plus with out giving her the insulin shots twice a day probably give or take 6 months to live so were trying to keep positive and take one day at a time.

Our nine year old lab/doberman mix had a tumor in her front leg (we found this out when she went out one morning and came back in with her leg broken). We rushed her to the vet who knew that they suddenness of her leg breaking probably indicated cancer. After running tests, it was confirmed. We were referred to Michigan State University's small animal hospital. They said we could amputate her leg, but odds were she would live maybe to a year. Well, we wanted to give her a chance and six years later she died peacefully in her
sleep.
Though we had a debt that took a few years to pay off, we were so happy that she was able to live out her life comfortably (she adapted to three legs and was full of spit and
vinegar).
My advice is to definitely visit the vet and if the diagnosis is cancer, then take into consideration your pet's health and happiness. Our girl was very happy and comfortable!!

My dog has same bump and they said it was cancer. He is on antiinflammory and pain killers some days. they wanted to amputate his leg and do chemo but only gave him 9 months to live. he is 9 years old next week and i was not going to do that to him. besides some limping he is very active and healthy. we are just going to let him live his life to its fullest

I have a 7 year old Golden Retriever. Very active, athletic and healthy enough until the last year when he started do "cripple" and show some pain in his right front leg joint. Due to some ignorant Vets that saw him twice and didn't do anything to resolve his pain or give any valid answer I tried a Orthopedist Vet and he did some X-Rays and investigated his lump with a needle. I got the answer today, it's a agressive tumor! Today I'm taking my dog to the Oncologist and see if there's any hope for him without amputating his leg.

I just had to put my dog down, on his front leg he had golf ball lump that quickly grew to a size of a baseball, it burst open and he was bleeding badly. Hershey was 10 year old lab mix. Doctors said that they would have to cut of his leg, I could not do that to my friend. We will miss him, he was loved.

A ten year old cocker spaniel who has been my companion for the best part of ten years, has a soft lump on the upper part of his leg. It is soft and it doesn't seem to be causing him any pain. In India the vets aren't always as scrupulous as one would expect them to be, so it is not always in the best interest of the dog to rush him to the vet for an innocuous aberration. So I ask you earnestly, is an immediate consultation required?

My eleven year old Black Lab has a growth like described i.e. at the joint on his front leg. It looked swollen and red, then changed over to a loose hanging piece of skin for a while and people told me it was normal for Labs. However, it has become red and swollen again. Is there any home care that would help this condition. He gets extremely upset when going to the Vet and at 76 years of age it is difficult for me to handle him during these visits. We only go when it is absolutely necessary. He is a farm dog and a wonderful friend.

My 9 month old pure bred chocolate lab developed a hard red lump attatched to her skin on the right side of her right front leg towards her knee. After a few weeks, it has grown to be two times the size it had originally been. I'm afraid it is harmless but id like to save money by avoiding the vet and seeing if I can configure what the lump is before I take any preliminary action.

My nine year old Lhaso Apso cross 'Missy' has just been diagnosed with 'spindle cell tumours' on both her legs, diagnosed after being referred to specialist who took needle aspirations on them, they only came up a few weeks ago. She is having them removed on Tuesday and I'm worried sick after looking this up online it doesnt look good for her, she also has a lipoma on her shoulder. She is otherwise so healthy. Anyone any experience in this ? Garateful for any advice. Christine.

Please always take your dog to the vet better safe than sorry. My 13 yr old Chow Chow had the same problem. The vet said it was cancer. 6wks later the cancer had spread through her body and she could not walk. I put her down to spare her the pain.

I had a 10 year old Golden/Lab mix. She developed several small tumors on her sides and near her ears. The doctor said it was probably just age, and it was probably nothing. She didn't seem to have pain or other problems. About 6 months later I knew something was wrong. I took her back in and it was determined she had cancer and it was not treatable. Please don't assume that those lumps are nothing. She died in my arms at the vets office in December of 2007.

My dog had a lump on her toe and it was a fatty tumor. The vet had to take her toe off. My other dog who has passed had a lump on her leg. We didn't want to spend the $ to see what it was so we just had the vet take the lump off. She was a German shepherd/great dane.
