My husband and I notice my 1 yr old Doberman knot of his head growing a few days ago . I thought he may have knocked it playing with his brother. It has not gone down and I’ve noticed it feels almost like fluid on one side. Any thoughts? We are taking him to the vet but I really don’t want to subject him to any xrays unless absolutely necessary.

I would hazard a guess that it is not a cyst. Most likely a hemotoma which in most dogs will resolve itself. However, in some dogs is does not. 

Do you know what the VWD status of your boy is?
