Thank you all so much. I have been googling my head off. There are some similar pictures, and the hyperkeratosis is one. Thing is, this growth isn’t “hard”, it’s very soft. There are also pics of skin cancer tumors, and these look similar too. The growth itself doesn’t seem to bother him, rather it’s The inflammation surrounding that is tender. He lets me treat it though. And look - over the last two days, two of the “fronds” (?) have fallen off!! No idea where they went... in the snow? In the house?!!! Maybe it’s warts....???? So odd. I just don’t know. 8DD0AEAB-0568-4B6D-9F7F-3B52F829D347.jpeg

That’s ok! Thank you for reaching out...
i suspect we will be getting a biopsy regardless, it’s just too odd.

Keep us in the loop as none of us knows what it is n neither the vet. This is something most of us would like to know as it can help other members. Can be simply extra cartilage. Who knows.

Hi everyone,
here is a little update for you about Wilbur’s growth. Essentially, it fell off!!! The first pic is from dec 23, and the last is yesterday. I spoke with my vet and showed her all the pictures (I kept a photo log) and she didn’t seemed surprised that it dissolved and fell off. She has attributed it to the body’s response to inflammation, and the skin in the toes is always a Prime spot for this. Wilbur also has frequent interdigital cysts. I’m really glad we didn’t perform a surgery since it seems to have corrected. My regime was daily cleaning with duoxo pads and then applying Isaderm (topical corticosteroid + antibiotic.
There is no sign of it regrowing so far, and it’s as though it never happened. Very odd, but I suppose with everything going on with him, it isn’t surprising that there would be some sort of response manifestation.
