Default Skin Tags?

Middie has one HUGE one on his neck, and when I was grooming him tonight I found a hard lump that looks like another starting to form.

His skin is white, so the big one looks like a bloated tick. Ugh.

Gage has one on the back of his neck, it's been there since we got him, the vet has checked it out and said not to bother with it unless it gets bigger, but it's the same colour as the rest of his skin.

My Malinois had one that I thought was a tick, also. I let it go until it was over an inch long. The vet tested for cancer when it was still small, and it wasn't, so I waited to have it removed. The vet did it in the exam room with a local so I could keep my girl calm.
