Can dogs have tumors?

My 5 year old girl dog who's a shih tzu/peckinese mix has this weird round lump on her stomach and some people say it might be a tumor. Is it? I'm really worried and i don't know if it's serious or not for the vet:/ Please help!!

Only a vet will be able to tell you if it is a fatty cyst or a tumor. It may only need to be aspirated, or you might need to do a tissue biopsy to determine if it is a malignant growth. Please make a vet appointment soon.
