Having had several Bassets get to 11-12, current one is 13, I have found these fatty tumors (benign) to be just pretty common. Then there are what I'd call warts too, Maggie has several small ones all over, and one on inside of her ear, about 1 inch from tip. Pea sized, ugly, but, well, just there. She also has a fatty benign tumor behind her ear that is getting pretty big, but it's been there a long time and at her age I'd as soon avoid anaesthesia (but her bad breath argues for teeth cleaning too). Anyway, lumpy is one of her knicknames.

In addition to the benign tumors, mine have had several sebaceous cysts; more like a big nasty pimple. Maggie had one for years that was about the size of a grape on her side, vet said not to worry. Then, when we were gone for three weeks and a friend was house sitting, it decided to erupt. Erupt is about as good a word as you could use, it was a mess and required about 8 stitches to close. Fortunately, this was a good friend who is not squeamish, we still laugh about it! That, and the fact that she convinced him couch time was OK and that he allowed her to develop what has become an insatiable milkbone habit! (He likes to eat; only person I know who will actually order DESERT before dinner!)
