Lump on head? What is it?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Last night I noticed Spot has scratched a small area open behind his whiskers on his upper cheek. Then, upon examination, I felt a small lump on his head above his left eye that is about the size of a pea. He just finished 2 weeks of antibiotics for a UTI. What could it be???????????

I'm so worried.

Whatdoes the lump feel like? Is it hard, does it move around? Squishy?? C'mon Spotty....you've worried your meowmy enough already!!

Do you have other cats? Could it be a battle wound?

It feels kinda hard, has hair--you wouldn't really even notice unless you felt it. When I pull the hair away it looks a little scabby.

could be a cyst from a bite but i would take him to the vet and check it out.

Since you just moved into a new apartment and there IS a possibility that there may have been other pets there, my first thought would be a flea allergy. Lil Bit will get little bb size itchy swellings that she will eventually scratch open, if she doesn't have her flea meds. Since you do see a scab...that would be my first guess.

Then...there is always the possibility of a reaction from the antibiotics. I'd just give the vet a call and ask about the antibiotics....
