Tumours occur relatively commonly in the mouth. Many of these can respond very well to early treatment. It is important to regularly check your petís mouth for any lumps or bumps.
It is not wrong to assume that any lump growing in the mouth is potentially a tumour. It is therfore wise to consult your veterinary surgeon, or an experienced veterinary dentist, for their opinion. Frequently further investigation (such as dental readiographs and biopsies) may be necessary to obtain a diagnosis. One of the most important things is not simply leave things to "see what happens". Leaving things may mean that spread to other organs can occur - or the local mass itself becomes far more difficult to treat.
