Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How old is your lad?

How long has this area been swollen?

Is it firm, soft, fluidy, or sore to the touch?

Any signs of wounds or healing sores?

If you press on it gently, does it reduce and get smaller (as if it is going back into the body)?
