    Default Histiocytoma? Cyst? Hairless bump

    Toby within the last week had a red spot on his nose turn in to what looks like a huge mole. Is this a Histiocytoma?

    Attached is a pic from today and one from 5 days ago. I don't recall if there was a red dot there 5 days ago (in this pic) but you can't see anything so the bump wasn't there 5 days ago.

    It looks like one to me too… Bella would get those in her folds, I would just keep them cleaned up w/witch hazel and they would go away.

    Romeo had one on his back leg/hip area awhile back and it went away on its own in a few weeks..he also gets them on his front feet occasionally but they are the interdigital cysts and we have a medication that dries them out

    It does look like one, but I've never seen one in that spot. I'd get it checked if it gets any bigger.

    Def. Looks like one. My one dog had it on his paw next to his paw pad. It was about a month or two before it went away. My girl had one on her chest. When I asked my vet if this was a sign that they might be predisposed to malignant tumors she said no
