I've been keeping an eye on it and it feels about the same but maybe like it's getting a little bigger.

I'm worried about cancer.

He's only 3, but I know cancer doesn't discriminate.

Should I be concerned and take him to the vet?

It looks like a histiocytoma to me. Common in younger dogs. My boxer had one on his face too. I did have my vet look at it as I'm cautious with all bumps. It eventually ruptured and went away. If you're concerned I would have a vet look at it.

It might be papilloma. My dog recently went through one. They getting them from other dogs and it’s contagious so if it is papilloma you should make sure he won’t see other dogs. Papilloma disappears by itself after couple weeks.

Any growth that gets bigger that fast needs to be checked. I’d def bring him in.

Only a biopsy can tell you what it is exactly. If you think it may be growing it’s best to take care of it sooner rather than later.
