I found a cyst between my 11 year old lab’s paw. It was growing and bleeding. The vet tried to remove it, but said that the roots went around tendons and arteries. He wasn’t sure if it was cancer or benign. He did not biopsy it. In either case, he recommended removing her toes or paw if it returns.
She has terrible arthritis and really needs both her front paws to walk.
What are the implications if I just leave this cyst/tumor alone?
