My dog has a histiocytoma on top of her paw, but she is constantly licking it, why?

Posted by Dora

She is a 4 year old staffi and full of life, but over a week ago we found a redish lump on top of her paw, she is constantly licking it and she doesnt mind us wiping it down with warm salty water to clean it, but it does have a raw fleshy smell to it, is this normal as I have only found online photos of dogs with the same thing but not on top of their paws. We have been told by the vet that it will eventually drop off, but I doubt it if its not drying up and she is licking it all the time.

Hope you can help

Kind regards
