Vet appt. soon.
It started out looking like a histiocytoma . I wish I had gotten pix of it when I first noticed it. Picture a pea-sized lump without a smooth surface.

It looks like it is healing IMO bc there is hair growing in now. I keep it clean , and try to not let him lick it. :oops:

looks like he has licked his elbow callous until it softened and fell off. by any chance does he have allergies or yeast problems?
