Bailey has one about where his sternum ends. It's been there for a while and the vet has checked it twice and says it's not a big deal. It's growing, but slowly. I've read on another forum that they often grow back if you have them removed. Bailey's about due for an exam and I'm wondering about it. I don't realy want him put under anesthesia, he's almost 11. Is the vet right or should I push to have it removed?

Lilly has a few. They grow, they receed, they move. . . She's 13 and we have no intention of having them messed with.

hope that helps!

Unless the tumor impedes with their movement/comfort or is so large or in a location where it would be dificult to remove (ie needing a skin flap or graft to close it) if it got any larger then watchful waiting is fine.
