HELP! Growth on Yorkie ):
Hey everyone. I am new to YorkieTalk and would really appreciate some advice on the growth I found on my angel.
Max is 7 years old, & I adopted him from the shelter about a year and a half ago. I found a small growth on his cheek almost 1 year ago but was convinced by family and the nurse who updated his vaccines that it was nothing to worry about. I'm in a lot of distress because it has since doubled its size.
It does not bother or hurt him when I touch/examine the growth.
It does not leak blood or any other sort of fluid.
It is attached to his cheek at one middle point, kind of like a balloon hanging on firmly.
Any advice or thoughts are appreciated.
I will be taking him to the vet as soon as I have some funds, but right now it is difficult because of college expenses):

This could just be a benign follicular or sebaceous cyst, which many dogs get. Since it's by the mouth, it may need to be removed since it's getting bigger.

Look into Care Credit. They approve over the phone in minutes. Each vet's office handles Care Credit differently, so check with the office about their terms. For charges of $200 or more, they offer interest-free financing for 6 to 24 months with small monthly payments.
