    One of my does recently developed a growth on her neck. Right under her chin. Its a large lump and the hair has fallen off of it. Anyone got any ideas for treatment?

    No it on her dewlap tho. Kinda looks like a huge boil or something. I wonder if there is a gland there or something. I might try to lance it and drain any fluid.

    Upload a picture? And additional info? It might be a tumor a cist or really anything there's not much to go off

    Could be a lot of things, but probably an abscess. Those aren't uncommon, especially in the chin/dewlap area.
