Cancer?
#1
So I got a button buck about a week ago and butchered him over the next couple of days.  I came across something I thought was questionable.  He had two small "growths" at the shoulder joints of his forelegs.  If it was only on one side I would assume it was some sort of cancerous tumor but it was on both legs and seemed like something else.  Anyone know what these are?

Lymph nodes. Every deer (and mammal for that matter) has them. Deer have like 10 or 12 of them I think in various spots on the body (neck, legs, etc...). Cut them out and do not consume them! They are where the body filters toxins etc...

Thanks folks. Somehow I've missed seeing these on the deer I've butchered prior to this. I was hoping they were glands since they were on both sides but I thought I'd err on the side of education rather than guesswork. I appreciate the help.
