I have a 6 year old Min Pin with a lump on her side as well.  It's been there for about 2 years and is growing-bit by bit.  I finally had a needle biopsy done at the Vet which confirmed a sebaceous cyst.  Today, vets don't like to remove them unless they are in areas which are causing discomfort or areas that get a lot of friction.  However, since the biopsy, the cyst has grown and changed size, particularly at the site of the needle biopsy.  Still, it does not bother her.  My suggestion: Get a biopsy to determine just what you are dealing with and go from there.

I can not make guess about lump on your dog because I can not see it. Such growths always need physical examination because these can be harmless lipomas to cancerous growths. Following are possibilities
  1. Lipomas
  2. Hematomas
  3. Abscess
  4. Hives
  5. Warts
  6. Sebaceous cyst
  7. Infected hair follicle
  8. Cancerous growth
If this lump in your dog is not causing any problem then it can be lipoma which are harmless. But surgery can be done to remove them. Ideally, you should take your dog to vet.

A lump on the skin of dog can be due to many reasons. No body even vet can not tell you without microscopic examination of the cells of the lumps or bumps. This can be lipoma, sebaceous cyst or it  can also be cancerous cyst. So it will be good to see a vet for proper diagnosis and treatment.

You might want to take her to the vet to get it checked out. It could be a tumor yes. They are not always cancerous they can be begin (no cancer.) or it could be miglant(cancer). But it is possible it could be an infected bug bite and it could be a cyst. The vet would know how to help you better

It could be just a small benign cyst that if full of fluid. Is it hard to the touch or pliable? I shouldn't worry if it is causing no discomfort. However, if you feel the need to be absolutely certain, take your dog to the Vet, he or she can then decide to drain the lump if necessary.

Have your veterinarian examine this lump. They will do a fine needle aspirate--a small needle is inserted into the lump to collect cells for examination and identification under a microscope. Identifying the lump will direct treatment.

The Johnson strain of American Bulldog has a very heavy build that
already resembles the English Bulldog, while the Scott strain of
American Bulldog tends to be more standard in appearance.
If you were to breed an English Bulldog to a Johnson Strain of
American Bulldog they would very much look like a somewhat larger than
normal English Bulldog.
However, if you were to breed an English Bulldog to a Scott
strain of American Bulldog the resulting puppies would probably look
like Johnson American Bulldogs.
The American Bulldog is believed to be a descendant of the
English Bulldog. While the English Bulldog was bred down over time to
be a stockier, more squish faced dog, the American was bred more true
to its original parentage. The American Bulldogs of today, particularly
of the Johnson strain, are probably a better example of what the
English Bulldog once looked like, then the English Bulldogs themselves.
Oldie English Bulldogs (an english bulldog crossed with an
american bulldog) is not as 'stocky' as english bulldogs are, and
their snout is a bit longer (still very stubby, though), plus their
tail is longer (still short)
