    Default large cyst

    hey guys. iím new here but have a question. krampus is our older en. he is 16 months old and in tact. today I was bathing him and just noticed a large cyst like bump on the lower neck. it is right under where his collar sits and is rather large. about 1inch around. it didnít seem to bother him at all when I palpated it. should I get him checked out by the vet? what could it be? the hair is gone from over the cyst but no other symptoms at all.

    Hello and Welcome!!

    Yes definitely get him check out. You simply never know what kind of a cyst. One of our members @2BullyMama just went through this. All went well. I’m sure she’ll answer you. But do go see your vet. Please keep us posted.

    Every single cyst we’ve experienced were ultimately removed. Some Vets want to aspirate it first or do a biopsy. Doing that has always been a waste of time and $...ultimately it gets excised. Be aware that some cysts can return in time.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    I agree-have your Vet check it out! Much better to be safe. @cjdickenson

    Hi, as everyone has already said its best to have it checked out but try not to worry too much. We have just been through exactly the same scenario with our Dudley, he ended up with a large lump in exactly the same place which appeared over a couple of days he saw two different vets and both decided to just monitor it and that it was most likely a reaction to the injection
    he had earlier that week and is quite common (which is what we were hoping because the lump was exactly where he always gets injected) anyway nearly two weeks later and it is much smaller than it was before.

    Has Krampus had any injections recently?

    Simon.
