Hi Ian,

This growth appears to be benign.
You wrote,

"...sometimes bleeds, has been there for approx. 6 months."

You did not mention whether it started off much smaller and has grown to this size over 6 months, or if the growth was first noticed at the current size, and has remained the same. Since it sometimes bleeds, that indicates that it might get infected. Does he scratch? Scratching the area would certainly cause it to be inflamed and irritated.

VACCINATINONS are a prime cause of these growths.

I suggest that you seek the help of a holistic veterinarian, to write an exemption to prevent future vaccinations.
