My dog has a lump near his penis. What is it?

Lumps on or near to a dog's penis could be the result of a number of problems or conditions. The best way to establish exactly what is wrong with your pet would be to take it to a vet.

The vet can undertake a thorough and detailed examination of this lump, and should be able to make a diagnosis based on his findings.

After the lump has been diagnosed, treatment for the problem can then begin straight away.

  • Allergies: Allergies can cause lumps such as these in any region of your pet's body. Allergies can be caused either by bacteria, fungus or parasites. Luckily, they are fairly easy to cure.
  • Cysts: This lump may be a cyst. Luckily, cysts are usually not serious, but you may want the vet to check them out anyway. If the lump bursts, then treat it with an antiseptic product.
  • Infection: The lump may also be the sign of an infection that your dog has contracted. If this is the case, then again, your dog will have to be treated by a vet.
