|Hooray. Great to hear.
Joey had a bump that was aspirated with "inconclusive results." If the bump doesn't go away, you might want to have the aspiration done again (maybe in a month or two) just for peace of mind. Mast cell cancer can be hard to diagnose by sight, and sometimes the tumors grow or shrink for no apparent reason.
There is something that looks like an MCT that goes away by itself in 4-6 weeks. I forget the name, but Joey had one of those, too. A bump could be any number of things, and I'm glad your vet is not just taking it off without good reason to do so!
What are the meds for - are they antibiotics, antihistamine, or something to drain a cyst if that is what it is?
I'm happy for your good news, but DO keep an eye on it, and also check for other bumps. It's hard to see them under a dog's skin until they get larger, and the earlier things are caught and looked at, the better!
