Sorry to hear your Lily has had to go through surgery - a worrying time for you. Everything crossed that the histology comes back clear.

We got Lilly's results and they were good! :D The growth removed was a histiocytoma.

A histiocytoma is a benign skin tumour that originates in the immune cells that function to provide protective immunity to the tissues that are in contact with the outer environment -- the nose, stomach, intestines and lungs, but mainly the skin's surface.

Histiocytomas are common in dogs, with some breeds appearing to be more predisposed than others. These breeds include flat-coated retrievers, bull terriers, boxers, dachshunds, cocker spaniels, Great Danes, and Shetland sheepdogs. More than 50 percent of diagnosed patients are under two years of age. Otherwise, there is no gender difference.

Symptoms
•Small, firm, dome or button-shaped masses on the skin surface
•Rare autoimmune blistering (dermoepithelial) masses, which may be ulcerated
•Fast growing, non painful, usually solitary
•Common sites are the head, ear edges, and limbs
•Occasionally multiple skin nodules or plaques

Causes - Unknown
