    bump on my dog's head. (HELP WITH SWELLING)

    i took my puppy to the vet yesterday because i saw that she was developing a nice size bump on the top of her head between her ears. the vet said that its possible that she just hit her head and its just some swelling going on. i would like to know what will help with the swelling and is it ok to put ice on it for help.

  2. Is it right in the middle of her head between her ears?

    If so, this could be a "mid-line dermoid cyst". They are common in some families of Am Stafs and may be in other breeds as well.

    If it stays small, I wouldn't worry about it. These can grow quickly and become very large. It's best to get them removed while they are small. They aren't cancer or anything, but a malformation of the skin along the mid-line during embryonic development where hair follicles get trapped in the wrong place and then grow...
