|It sounds like a growth that one of our dogs had a couple of years ago, also on his leg. I can't remember the name of it, sorry. The vet took a tissue sample which was sent to a lab for diagnosis. As I recall the vet said it's not uncommon in young dogs. It grew very fast but was non-malignant. The vet gave me a cream to apply to it with instructions to keep it dry and bandaged and it went away in a few weeks.
It was a scare for us as this type of benign tumor resembles some types of malignant tumors. I hope your doggie is okay. If I remember the name of the type of tumor he had I'll repost.
