Any ideas what his could be?

My black lab is 1 yr and 4 months old. She had a litter of pups in November and this tumor started growing. It's growing had no clue and wants to remove it but I don't have 700 to do so. I was thinking about numbing the area and puncturing it to see if it's an infection. I have the sterile equipment and medicines to do so. I really think it is a cancerous tumor tho because it's growing way too fast. I'm torn and don't know what to do

The tumor is double this size now over what, a week?

Is it causing her pain? It looks like its on her teet, no? She is still a pup herself at a year old..idk at what agents safe to breed dogs but could it be caused by her having pups when she is still just a pup herself? That's odd I have never seen this!

No it doesn't bother her at all. She is her old playful self too. No changes in anything. It's not on a nipple it's in between nipples. It is in her udder it hangs at the bottom =(

It could be mastitis. How many pups did she have?

The vet said it's not mastitis because its not on a nipple and it itself doesn't look like mastitis. She had 11 puppies O.O I want to puncture it to see I anything drains. I have antibiotics and the proper equipment to do so. Would this be a bad idea?

I honestly wouldn't. I'm sure if you talked to the vet about setting up a payment plan they wouldn't turn you down.

I already have and I've called around. I wasn't approved for the care card because I don't have much credit. I even went around to shelter for help and advice. Nothing.

I wouldn't take it upon yourself to cut it open. Keep an eye on it, and take her back to your vet if it gets worse. Talk about your options... There has to be something better then cutting it open yourself.

It has gottn worse. I've talked to 15-20 diff. Vets and the suggestions I got was well people are more important sometimes you have to do things you don't want to and put her down.... O.O she's 1 yr old!! I it wasn't growing like it is it would give me time but it's not cooperating with me
