mammary tumor

Do you have any pictures of mammary tumors? How fast do they grow?
I just discovered my Paint Mare has a lump a little smaller than a baseball. The vet is scheduled to come check her in a week.

Mammary mass

How did your mare do? I just found an egg-sized mass behind my QH mare's R. teat. Vet coming this week, but I'm not finding much encouraging literature...
