Dogs and kids are best friends. There is no reason to push ones away.
Last week I found a lump on Cookie's leg and it is about the size of small coin so I took her to the vet to run the test. Then I asked to run the tests for the other 4 lumps too (on her back, chest and stomach). I am waiting for the result as it might take up to 5-7days. Then we will decide to remove them from Cookie esp the one on her leg. She will be 10 at the end of this year so these things happen as normal I think.
I will give you all an update once I hear from the vet.
