I think a fine needle aspirate would be a good idea, especially since this has been an issue for a couple months now. This is what it sounds like your vet will be doing. Your veterinarian will insert a needle into the area, they will then push any cells collected in the needle onto a slide. Then they look at the slide and determine what cells are present. The type of cells present will help the veterinarian to determine whether this is an abscess, benign mass, malignant mass, or it may show no abnormalities at all.
