My 6 month old male basset has a lump/growth/mass the size of a baseball near the base of his penis. It is not attached to the penis (I'm not referring to the bulbus glandis) but rather attached to his body. The base of the penis is just the best way to describe the location. The mass feels kind of lumpy. It is not near the scrotum (he is neutered and both testicles descended normally and were removed). I have another adult male dog (not basset) also neutered and I felt the same area on him. It seems he has tissue there that feels the same, however it's very, very small. So I'm guessing this tissue is a normal part of the anatomy, however in my basset it's overgrown for some reason. I wish I had another male basset to compare to. I think it is not normal, but feeling the same texture of tissue in my other male dog makes me second guess. Of course I'll take him to a vet on Monday (he's not in pain) but I was wondering if anyone else has had such an experience with a male basset. Thank you!
