It does not hurt her to touch or squeeze them. Is this something I should be alarmed about? I’ve included a picture for reference.

I’d actually like it better if it did hurt to touch, because that would signal an infection. I would not mess with such bumps but have it checked out and aspirated as soon as possible. It’s not about panic but about due diligence.

Anything that is discolored like that I would have a vet check it immediately.  I check my dogs about once a week, full body check, for growths. Most of the time, it ends up being a fatty deposit, benign growth but my mixed breed, Bailey, ended up having a cancerous growth just above her knee on her back leg.  I took her to the vet for a biopsy because it grew really fast and felt harder and less movable then the fatty deposit had.  They did a needle biopsy and it was cancer. We had it removed and she’s great!
