    Thanks everybody..

    Kevin's vet used to work at the 'Colorado State University Veterinary School Cancer Center'.. and he'll talk your ear off telling you how lucky we are to have him around.. This time i didn't roll my eyes when he was bragging . so i'm fairly sure its just a normal Histiocytoma. But he did freak-me-the-he11s-out!

    It sounds like Histiocytomas are common on Bulldogs, Terriers, Boxers, etc. The mostly occur on younger dogs and normally go away on their own in 2-3 months. I'm only having it removed surgically because 1) i never trust DR's so i want a 2nd opinion... and 2) its starting to irritate Kevin now that he knows its there. He's starting to scratch at it and well.. i'm not good with blood.. and i'm secure in my manhood enough to use the word... 'icky'.

    If there was any chance he'd be in danger from a
    nesthesia i'd let it just go away on his own. He'll probably complain more about getting his nails trimmed then the growth sliced off.

    I do need to go out and buy him some 'belly shirts' to cover up his stitches.. I'll post pictures, but i imagine he'll look something like this:
