Thread Starter 

Hello!

So ive always noticed a bump on my cats nose before it just looks bigger then what i can remember and I am not sure if I should be worried or not....

The bump is in the middle.

Hi summoplex and welcome! wavey.gif

 

I've just been through a whole 'bump on the nose' saga with my boy.  It's a sebaceous cyst, which are benign but can cause problems. Sometimes they need to be aspirated or cut out. Your kitty's looks big and and is probably uncomfortable if not painful. There are things that can happen, depending on what is causing it.. For example if they burst, especially on the face, it's quite risky.  I'd definitely take her/him to the vet.

Someone else may know more about what it's likely to be here.

Please do keep us posted!

I agree on a vet visit then you'll know for sure.  Cat's are so clever at hiding pain so you won't know?

 

Let us know what happens though

I would check with the vet about it. I went through the same thing several years ago with Swanie.  However, my vet said that she had encountered at least one other case where it was cancer.  We chose to have it removed and biopsied because of that.

I've just quoted my own post as it sounds like I'm saying your cat's is a sebaceous cyst and I didn't mean that.. just that that is what Sundar had.  I could be any number of things.

Do let us know how you get on smile.gif
