Golf-ball shaped lump on my dog's neck

I just noticed that my dog has this rather large lump on the left side of his neck... It's weird because yesterday he didn't have it. I'm thinking it may be an inflamed lymph node, but I don't know. No other lymph nodes are inflamed. He's 14 by the way.

Anyway, the vet is closed tomorrow so I'll be taking him Monday but I just wanted to know if anyone has any idea of what it could be.

Depends on the dog but some can be just fat.

Is your dog overweight at all? What kind of dog?

**** no, this dog is a mut, and is just sort of our barn dog. She has so many problems wrong with her (hip arthritis, half blind, her bladder doesnt work and she just leaks everywhere, and juts overall gross) it would cost like 1000$ to get her all fixed and stuff, so we just dont worry about it, i think it might be a gum infection.


PS> She lives outside, this talk would never be aloud in my house

He's a lhasa apso and he's not fat at all. He has a bunch of fat balls all over his body, which have been checked by the vet. It's just weird that this "ball" pretty much appeared over night.

At first I thought it was lymphoma but if it was, all the lymph nodes should be inflamed, no? I also remember that about 2 weeks ago he got a little piece of bone stuck at the back of his mouth... Maybe it's still there and causing some sort of infection?

Ugh, I hate this because I know my dog is getting on with age... And yeah...

I hope it's nothing bad. You must be worried, hopefully it'll not be anything serious.

I used to have a Lhasa, and we found a similar lump on his side once. Turned out to be a benign tumor that didn't pose any real threat to his health, but we had it removed because he wouldn't stop scratching and biting at it.

This makes me a feel a little better. Though in my case, I probably won't have it removed since he's way too old to have an operation. Another thing that's encouraging is that he hasn't lost his appetite and he's still pretty peppy.

And my dog isn't a pansy lol

If it's the same thing as my dog, don't be alarmed. When they get old the skin gets weak internally, it sometimes separates and fluid fill up in these big sacks. The vet drained it and then after a while it came back. We have the option of keep draining it or just living with it. It's an inconvenience, but not much more.

The overnight part makes me think it's something similar.

Overnight is probably an inflamation.

Or have you counted your golf balls?

He's going to the Vet tomorrow hopefully. It seems it hasn't gotten any bigger, which is good I think. He's in no pain whatsoever either.
