Hard lump on my dogs back. What is the worst possible diagnosis?

Posted by finn4

It is hard like a bone, doesn't move, doesnt' hurt him. He is an 8 yr old medium size dog of healthy weight and appetite. It is located on his lower back a couple inches from the spine, I believe on a loin muscle. It's about the size of a quarter. I've pretty much ruled out a harmless fatty tumor but I still have my fingers crossed. He sees the vet this evening. Any suggestions?

Since you're seeing his veterinarian tonight, let's wait on your report of the exam.  Visualization of the lump will provide some valuable clues.
