Especially since it is growing rather rapidly I would recommend having it checked out by a vet who will most likely want to take a fine needle sample for a cytology to determine exactly what it is. Hystiocytomas are benign but I’ve seen quite a few mast cell tumors that look like Hystiocytomas.  Mast cell tumors need to be removed with wide surgical margins. Best of luck.
