bump on belly

I noticed my arabian horse has a bump on his belly, it is about 3'' round and protudes about half a inch.Does not bother him at all.I had someone come look at it (a vet tech) and she thinks its a strained muscle, it is attached to the abdomel (sp?)wall and softens up the more its touched,or its also possible my paint horse kicked him.I noticed the bump about 2-3 days ago and it has gotten a little bigger.Has anyone ever had this happen to your horse? What do I do, anything?? I'm calling the vet tomorrow(he also needs his teeth floated) to make a appointment.Also a week in a half ago I rode him hard, lots of running, cause he didnt want to stop.lol Could that have anything to do with it?? Thanks

I'm wondering if it is perhaps a hernia? But hard to tell without seeing it. Can you push it back inside the abdominal cavity? Or is is between the muscle and the skin?

Or as its getting bigger, perhaps its an abcess. But abcesses are usually hard so its probably not.

Let us know how it goes with the vet!

No it can't be pushed up the abdominal cavity, it is between the muscle and the skin.I was thinking it was a hernia, but don't know. The vet is calling me tomorrow to set up a app. Will let you know, thanks

I would definitely have your vet look at it. I'm in a super paranoid mood, we found bumps on my mare's tummy and they turned out to be a tumor (one giant one).

They don't look like this do they?:


Or this

Yeah, it was one giant tumor so it got removed (two days ago). They grow really fast and this one was pretty decently sized. It is being autopsied, but the vet thinks it's benign. My mother's trainer is going to send us pictures which I might end up making a post about.

Nope, but I would still recommend getting them checked out. We waited a while because they didn't seem to bother her. When they got bigger we got them checked out, but I wish we had done it sooner.
