I apologize for crappy pic quality, she wouldn't hold still. But these are on my 12 year old husky. One is round, smooth, and black. On her head. The other is flesh colored and lumpy with a black spot in the center. On her hip. Do they look familiar to anyone? I googled and they could just be moles, but I'm worried about cancer because of her age.

It's not a tick. It's wider at the base. I've seen plenty of ticks.

Vet trip time. Could be a mole, could be a benign tumor, could be cancerous, only one way to be sure.

I'm trying to assess if that's necessary. The vet is expensive. We will take her if need be, but neither spot seems to be bothering her at all.

my dad's dog had them. they are just the dog equivalent of liver spots. your vet might cut them off but they just left them on my dads dog.

Moles? My dog has a lot of them.

I know that vets are expensive; we have pet birds and take them to exotic vets if and when it's necessary.

Hopefully, some of the other members are right and it's just a mole or age spot.

You would only be paying an office visit fee to have them do a visual assessment. Any testing or surgery would be a decision you'd make once the options were outlined. 

Unless you plan to dig a hole in the backyard, it's probably just as expensive to cremate your dog. Not to be callous, but get it looked at.
