Hi all,

Just noticed a large lump on Mona's back left leg area. It's probably a half in in length and maybe a quarter inch in height. It's pretty hard, with very little give when pressure is applied, and moves freely from the rest of her skin/tissue. She has had some health problems, and they never seem to affect her the way they probably should so when I was touching it she wasn't phased at all. I'd love to get any advice you might have. I've done some research on tumors versus abscesses but it was pretty unhelpful. I unfortunately don't have the funds to take her to the bet right now. Here is a photo (rotate clockwise once to see it the right way up):

I would take her into the vet. Never a good idea to chance it with possible tumors, they can spread or grow fairly quickly. Even if its an abscess.
