I really think you are looking at a melanoma here. They are very common in older dogs. The outlook depends on the type of cancer you are dealing with. Melanomas are common in dogs. They come in oral, cutaneous, sublungual, and ocular. The can be either benign or malignant. Melanomas are locally invasive. Certain breeds are more prone to them than others. Doberman Pinschers have the highest incidence of melanomas than any other breed. It is definitely a genetic cancer. Benign melanomas are the most frequent. Cutaneous benign melanomas are the most common of all. They often look like raised dark patches. It looks like you are taking the wait and watch approach. It's more than likely benign. However, if malignant, it is very aggressive. Malignant melanomas are usually found in the dog's mouth.
