hello all,
im new to this forum and have a question about my male great dane , hes about 2 yrs old and has developed a small red bump on his ear. it looks like it might be filled wih blood but from its hardness and the fact that it hasnt gone down in size i think its something more serious . i have attached a picture for anyone who might know what it might be , thanks !

The vet tested the bump by drawing some fluid and told us it is a Histiocytoma. It's basically a benign tumor that our vet said puppies are prone to getting. They typically go away on their own in about 3 months, so we are not doing anything for a treatment.

If anyone finds a bump like this, don't assume it is histiocytoma, because it could be malignant tumor or something else.
