Hi, I went to the vet back in March because I just noticed this cyst like small lump on my cat. He said he couldn't say for sure what it was and I decided I'd watch it to see if it changes. My cat is female and 14years old. DOES THIS LOOK FAMILIAR TO ANYONE?

Does it feel completely round? Can you move it around with the skin or is it attached to the bone?

It looks a great deal like what my Abby has on the top of her head. It started off really small and is now about the size of a canned chickpea. I figured it was just a benign cyst but for my own peace of mind I took her to the vet a few months ago. The vet did an aspirate of it and confirmed that it was a "Benign Epidermal Cyst" which is what I suspected.

Ask your vet if that's what your kitty has.

Hi, thanks for the response. It's actually slightly oval shape and doesn't feel attached but rather can move with the skin. I took her to the Vet and he couldn't say for sure. I didn't want to put my cat through anything if it's nothing (she doesn't handle the Vet or other people very well).

I think i'll take her back very soon to get it aspirated.
Wish the Vet could say what it was for sure.
