Yes, get him to another Vet asap.  Get that thing taken off or at least drained.

Benign cysts and lumps can eventually turn cancerous. Get it OFF of him.

Did the vet take any fluid out and have it checked?

I would have it removed, and if your vet did not suggest this at the onset I would have the work done by another Vet.
I had a knot removed from one dog before in the same place, it was originally caused by and injury and the hair had become in grown, it healed fine and no scar. 
Things left too long can turn into bigger problems.
Whatever it is have it removed.

sall,
You need to take your dog to another vet for a proper diagnosis.  There are too many speculations; some with more serious implications than others.  My first thought could be lipomas (www.peteducation.com/article.cfm) but you need a vet to take a biopsy to confirm the nature of this bump.  Good luck.

The  dr's told my Dad he  ahad a fatty cyst and  leave it alone. Well that fatty cyst turned to  a cyst/cancer. Get the darn thing off. If there is  anything  foreign on  your body your imune system will spend  it's energy fighting  it.
