    I just noticed this small bump about the size of a pea on my dogs head like the bone over her eye could it be cancerous should I go to the vet?

    hey frodos having same thing going on too..he has 1 on the knee, 1 on other toe, and 1 beside his right eye. i researched it and i think its called demodex mite disease, aka Demodicosis..somthign like that..it happens to dogs before age of 1 and if its really small i think its called "localized"..which will heal by itself after a week or try putting on some cream/gell from the vet...so the best thing to do is GO TO A VET.

    chill, ur dog'll live .. ;)

    I would take her to the vet. It's better to be safe than sorry.
