LATELY I'VE NOTICED THAT MY DOG HAS THIS ODDLY SHAPE LUMP ON HER SIDE. I DON'T HAVE THE FUNDS TO TAKE HER TO A VET BUT FROM AN VET'S POINT OF VIEW, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW COULD IT BE SERIOUS AND COULD SHE HAVE CANCER OR HEARTWORM DISEASE?
This sounds like a mass or a tumor which does not have to be cancerous. I recommend a visit to the vet. It is hard for me to make a diagnosis based on a disciption. vetcare
