Dog Has a Bump Near His Testicles?

My 11 month old Labrador Retriever has a dime sized bump (hopefully it's not a tumor but probably is). He also tends to lose pee from his wee wee randomly and it dribbles on the floor and bed. Does anyone else have this problem with their dog and if so any advice? I know I should take him to the vet, but I just want to know if anyone else had this ordeal and could offer advice? He is not neutered yet. The bump is up in the left corner of his nuts. It's a weird tear drop shape.

I do not believe you can judge your Lab's problem by any other owners experience as this can be very serious and should be checked as soon as possible. Your vet will be able to tell you right away (maybe after tests) but they will also know what steps to take to help you pup.

If it is a tumor then it may be benign and can be removed immediately or left but only a vet can tell you whether this is cancer or not.
Don't wait - Make an appointment and take your Lab to see his doctor.

He needs to be taken to a vet immediately and get neutered
Dogs that are not spayed or neutered end up with a whole list of possible and likely health problems. Once he I under anethesia the vet can also remove or take a sample from the lump. If money is an issue call around to all the shelters for low cost clinics. I would not wait.

Your dog has a very common issue, its anal gland needs to be expressed. Google it. You can attempt to do it, or take to the vet to do it.

To ignore it could result in it rupturing. Other times they go down on their own, but usually it needs to be expressed. For some reason, it happens more often to labs, but all dogs can experience it.

Please don't try to do your dogs anal glands. Getting it right is key. Most pet owners would never do it if they knew what to expect. I say this because you could seriously make the situation worse. Go to your vet,SPCA they know what they're doing. At that time ask them about adding a few spoon fulls of unsweetened canned pumpkin to his food. It's a great fiber and most dogs love it. Again ,ask your vet. The pumpkin should reduce the anal glands issues. Not promising. It's very uncomfortable when glands are full. Smelly too.

The only way to have peace of mind is to see your vet. It sounds like your dog has a problem and really should see a vet. The longer you wait the more damage it can do. I would make an appointment and get him checked out right away.

I had one dog that had tumors from time to time. They just removed them and she was fine. It is not a good idea to allow this to get any longer. The longer you wait the more dangerous it is for your dog.

It might be nothing, or it might be malignant. If something appears on a human or animal that wasn't there before, the thing to do is to consult a doctor, whether it's painful or not.

In this case it is best to see a vet ASAP. I hope he checks out okay.
