    Yes we had a deer last year we named Tumor. I let him walk thinking he might get through i. He has not been seen this year. Last year we got lots of trail cam pics.

    Yes, this is more common on whitetails than you would probably expect...I forget the technical name, but, essentially its a water tumor. It is totally harmless to the deer, and would have eventually go away.

    There was an arcticle on this in Deer & Deer Hunting magazine a few years back...and man, did they have some pictures to go with the arcticle!

    If you try to google it, look for hydro, and tumor on whitetails....im sure you would find some info on it.

    Default Hydrocyst

    If I'm not mistaken, that's called a hydrocyst. They're fairly common and usually caused by some kind of injury. They can be smaller than the one on your deer, or they can be so large that they actually make it hard for the deer to get around, making them an easy meal for predators.
    Pretty nasty looking, but the meat is safe to eat - although it does kinda turn your stomach.
