Q: Our one and one-half year old Labrador mix has developed lumps in her lower breast that come and go.  What could cause this?

A:  These can be fatty tumors, cyst, benign tumors, or even cantors tumors.  Have your veterinarian examine these lumps and either aspirate them or remove them for a biopsy to get the correct diagnosis.  The good news is that most lumps in younger dogs are not cancerous, but the only way to tell is through some sort of biopsy.
