My Basset Hound has bumps on her butt and she is very uncomfortable when you touch them... They grow and one of them has no hair on it.:(

Are they solid or soft to touch? Can you post a picture of them please and maybe Mikey or someone else can help...

Did they suddenly pop up or have you noticed them changing? Either way I would take her to a vet; skin cancer is common in dogs in general (the most common form of cancer for dogs) so you can never be too safe. Benign skin tumors are also very common; my mutt just had 3 removed last year. Anabelle has a large benign tumor as well that we haven't removed because it doesn't bother her.

Lumps should always be checked by the vet.
