My miniature poodle has some sort of lump on her stomach. I was thinking that it could be a benign cyst as it can freely move around, but I'm not sure as it may be a tumour. It doesn't seem to be attached to the tissue so I don't think it is, but I may be wrong. I noticed it a few days ago and it has remained the same size, so that is why I think it is benign and not malignant. She doesn't growl or cry when I touch it, so I don't think it is hurting her. She's only a 9 week old puppy and is a 5th generation pedigree. Does anyone know what the problem could be and how I could cure it? Here are some pictures of the lump:




Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Looks like it could be an umbilical hernia. If it is, it can be repaired when she's spayed if it doesn't fix itself by then. But definitely point it out to the vet when she goes in for her next set of shots. Really it could be anything and there are no "home remedies" for tumors :/.
