I'm just butchering a little yearling Roe and I've found some small growths. Initially 4 just under the skin one near each haunch and shoulder. They are kidney shaped and also have smaller red balls with them. Cut them open and they do not produce puss or anything similar. I've also now found a couple around the groin area and now one in each haunch in between the muscles.
The deer appeared fine when watching before the shot and the gralloch did not flag anything up, all internals and glands appeared normal. It did have a fairly heavy number of ticks and lice on it.
My initial thought was that it was nothing to be overly concerned about and to cut everything cucpect away, but now I'm not so sure.
Any advice gratefully received, cheers.
