lump on the leg

edited 22 April, 2016 in Cat Health
hi Catster community. I was cutting my kittie's nails today and found a small lump on her leg. I don't think it's painful. I will schedule her for a vet appointment, but I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience. Any ideas what it might be? Here is how the lump looks.

    It's hard to tell from a picture; and, anyway, it needs to be seen by a vet. Sometimes older animals develop lumps and bumps but they still need to have a veterinarian's confirmation. We'll be purring that your vet finds nothing serious.

    Thank you. I should have a response by Wednesday.

    Thank you! She is going through surgery today that should go 'super' according to the vet. I should be able to pick her up at the end of the day. The vet did the biopsy before the surgery that showed the lump to be the mast cell but they don't know whether it's a bad one or not and decided to remove it.

    The surgery when well. But recently we gave Eava a haircut and found another lump that just got removed. Hope these will be the last ones. Both lumps were mast cells and non-malignant. :)

    That's good news. Hope there are no more pop up lumps! =;
