My 12 year old SB gelding has large pea-sized lumps on the tips of both his ears. They are hard, non-painful and about four on each ear roughly. They are in a cluster, and you can see them raised under the skin. He has some bits of eyelid missing on both of his eyes, he had lumps cut off them as a young racehorse, the previous owner could not tell me what they were. He is quite a 'lumpy' horse, he has had various lumps that come and go, the vet has told me not to worry about those, but these ear lumps are here to stay. He is black, not grey, but I would like to get them biopsied when he comes back to Perth because I just don't think they are ok to stay there without checking if they are cancerous. I have had him since he was 8, the lumps have always been there. The vet told me to keep an eye on them before doing anything drastic, but they ain't shifting! I don't want to lop his ear tips off without making sure. If they are harmless I will leave well enough alone, but I have a niggle that says they aren't. I am worried they might be malignant sarcomas or something, I had a black tb gelding who had a similar thing years ago and that was what it was, nasty horrid lump on his stifle. He was about 16 at the time, and it had to be surgically removed. Anyone experienced similar ear or eye lumps?
