  •  Truman had one on his hip (32+ / 0-)

    And it would bleed when it popped and fell off.

    Took him to the vet the minute we spotted it, before any bleeding, and the vet did not do a biopsy but said it most likely wasn't serious but to keep an eye on it.
    He explained about hair follicles and glands under the skin and other things I cannot remember.
     The growth came back twice after that and both times it bled and then disappeared and it has never returned after that.

    Our vet said that bumps on cats are bad, but bumps on dogs is normal.

    Good luck, aoeu!

    All we need is LOVE!

      fatty tumor on elderest kitteh until she had to have an anesthetic anyway for dental work.

       While she was out, they removed the growth and sent a biopsy. Came back clean. They removed a couple of bad teeth, cleaned the rest, and returned her to us the next day.

      She steadily improved in health and temperament over the next several months, but fate caught up with her one day in November. She didn't come to supper after wanting to bask outside, and my SO found her in the grass, cold and stiff. She might have gone one-on-one with a car, but we can't be sure: she bore no visible injuries, or blood at ears or muzzle. She had been subject to seizures, and we'd seen her about three-quarters of an hour earlier, stalking (unsuccessfully) a dove in the yard...I credit the vet who did the dental-and-biopsy with giving her a much better last several months of life than she'd had the previous year.
