Showed up yesterday-on his chest, and large. He has a vet appointment at noon today to have it removed and biopsied--first glider with this for me, so any help is appreciated. Will keep you all updated.

Here's a couple pics for you

Note: he's one of the gliders that went with my ex when we split-I still watch out for them tho...

BTW...he is just over 7 years old.

I have heard of males having lumps show up on their chest around their scent glands. Could it be some kind of problem with a gland? I hope it turns out to be nothing serious. Will keep you both in my thoughts. Let us know how everything goes when you can. hug2

Jen my Bobbie girl developed a tumor on her chest....it just seemed to show up overnight and was HUGE. I took her in and the vet removed and biopsied it and it was fatty tissue and was not malignant. Prayers going out that Binx's tumor is the same. Call me if you want/need to talk. I'm at work tonight rather than home (unusual for a Fri)

Chris-that's what it is. vet called it a Lypoma-fatty tissue cells gone out of control. Poor guy-this is the little dude who was the first we know of to have the anal gland removal surgery (that part of things is doing fine btw)...Although they got it all, the warning is it could recur again, and we'd have to go through this all over again. frown In any case, he's recovering now-I'll have some post op pics for you all later this evening.

Oh, man- I am sorry to hear that little Binx had to go through this... I will keep him in my prayers and hope it does not reoccur. I hope he feels better soon!

Here's Binx's post-op pics...he's one miserable little guy, that's for sure. Sorry the second isn't the best quality. Guess I have a new area to study in with this issue.

Sorry for the delayed update...things have been busy. Got some more pics...these are 4 days after the last ones on Nov 17th...Binx had a go round with some infection, and necrosis in the tissue surrounding the stitches. frown This is before the necrosis at the early stages of the infection...

On the 27th, the necrotic tissue came off...stitches and all, and left a gaping wound in his chest-thats what these pics are. vet treated, and now he's almost entirely closed up despite how bad this looked, and no infection...so it'll take some more time but he's finally healing. Will get some updated pics of the closed wound in the next day or so for you all.

Finally got some pics of Binx's healing wound...he's one tough little dude that's for sure! It's nearly healed....and I never can say enough about the Silvodine cream for accelerating skin healing. In any case, he's nearly better....and here are the pics I promised...

I think so too smile It was so bad looking there for a while I was concerned he might not make it, but again, he's a trooper, and it looks like there'll be a minimal amount of scarring considering the size of the wound. Not bad for a glider over the age of 7, and he was wonderful about not messing with it-which helped.
