Hey all.

The wife and I have a 3 1/2 year old Silver Savannah that's developed a small (less than 1cm) bump/lump just behid his left front leg on his body. It feels like it's just under the skin. I've been 'watching' it carefully, and it doesn't appear to be getting larger...but it does feel like it's getting slightly harder. It may be my imagination, though.

From outward appearances, his health if 100% normal. I'm hunting around for a vet that will see him right now, but I thought I'd just throw this up here in case you guys have ever heard of it.

Thanks.

Probably just a skin cyst or fatty lump, but best to have a vet check it out! A needle aspirate may help diagnose what kind of cells are involved and determine whether it needs to be removed.

Cheers,
Dr. Jean
