I have a four year old female staffordshire bull terrier who has developed an ingrown sweat gland on the top of her head.  Vet has advised that it is nothing to worry about and not necessary to operate.  It is now becoming larger and I am concerned.  Any advice?

Claire,

A lot of veterinarians will tell a client to observe a growth on their dog or cat to see if it starts to get larger or starts to bother the pet.  Generally, if it starts to grow, a decision needs to be made about removing it.

You haven't said how big the growth is right now...so, a more specific answer isn't possible.
