Examples of common benign tumors in dogs include lipomas (fatty tumors), papillomas (warts), sebaceous adenomas, and histiocytomas.

In other words, don't panic if you find a new lump or bump on your dog.

Even if your dog does not have a cancerous tumor, he may be uncomfortable and require treatment.
