Old dogs and lumps

I have a three old dogs, and the 2 Weimaraners are quite lumpy at nearly 10 and 13 years old. The greyhound has very small lumps, since fat is not very often a problem with the breed. (How I wish I had that superior metabolism!) Last week I took Allie in to have a new lump checked. It appeared quickly on her neck and was hard, unlike the others which are usually pliable. It turned out to be a cebaceous cyst from an oil gland and will probably erupt some day as her body tries to get rid of it. (yuk!)
What do you do with lumps on your dogs? Do you have them all checked by a vet or just assume they are fatty tumors and harmless? Do you ever have them removed when they get big?
