This is an aspirate of a red cutaneous mass 1 centimeter in size, on the paw of a 6-month-old dog. That right there should have you thinking “benign histiocytoma” - a mass that typically occurs in young dogs under 4 years old. These usually do not get much larger than 1 centimeter and typically regress on their own in a few months at most, typically not requiring surgical removal.

On cytology these growths show clumped large round cells with large irregularly shaped nuclei and a large quantity of very pale blue cytoplasm.
