Growth on roof of mouth
Posted 11 June 2012 - 01:42 PM
This was last Wednesday, they said they took him to the vet but I think they're lying because the vet apparently told him he just bit his tongue?!
My dog bites his tongue while playing and I know the difference. Anyways, I looked at his mouth today and the white part by his teeth that did not look right last week was now gray. So my assumption, which I had last week, was that the mass was an abscess and he had a broken tooth.
Any other thoughts on what this might be? What will happen now that it is not being treated? Will the mass get bigger?

Could his age be any indicator? He is 10 and has several, like 5 or so small masses/lumps under the skin and they were told they were nothing to worry about (cysts maybe).
Is oral type cancer a common thing in dogs or border collies? The lump in his mouth was not smooth but rough looking, it seriously looked like a big wad of we dog fur.
