    my 10 month old dog has what i believe to be a growth due to a doggie papilloma virus under her lip...right above the dewlap thingie..
    (she is a mastiff breed)

    anyways...
    should i wait for her immune system to take care of it?
    ....or should i go ahead and remove it.

    ...or..do something else?

    thanks.
    :)

    First of all I would suggest that you have a vet check her out to make sure that it actually is papilloma. If you are sure that it is papilloma, the warts should disappear on their own in 4-12 weeks. I wouldn't worry about removing it unless it starts causing problems or if they are still present after 12 weeks.
  3. thanks for the reply.
    if she were human i'd be pretty sure it is squamous papilloma.
    pedunculated, soft, exophytic nodule with cauliflower appearance.
    ..grew very rapidly at first...with no change in size of late.

    i emailed one of our path instructors an image..
    we'll see.
