Thank you! The image is a bit blurry but the "lumps" are most consistent with cutaneous inverted papillomas. These are benign tumors induced by infection of epithelial cells by papillomaviruses. They're most common in young dogs, most commonly found on the ventrum (underneath) and are self-limiting - they regress in 6-12 months unaided. Take a look in his mouth, please, for the more common oral papillomatosis which begin as smooth white papules and plaques and progress to verrocous caluliflower-like lesions. Let me know if you see any.
Thank you for checking. "Watchful waiting" is appropriate because they're expected to disappear unaided within 6-12 months. If these have been present for just a few days or weeks, more may appear. If they've been there for a month or more, it would be very unusual for more to pop up. The general rule for skin growths is if they enlarge at an alarming rate (double in size in a month, e.g.), ulcerate or bleed, or bother my patient or caretaker, they should be removed. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
You're quite welcome. Thank you for your kind accept. I appreciate it. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
