    My kitty tiger has this bump on his head. I noticed it a few weeks ago and since then it hasn't changed in shape or size. The bump doesn't seem to be bothering him, it's not hot to the touch or itchy. IMG_0302.JPG I'd like to avoid going to the vet and running endless tests, but I will if I can't find any answers here. I think It is a just a fatty deposit. Anyone have something like this happen to your fur ball?? He is indoor/outdoor.

    Without it being seen in the flesh and felt, I doubt anyone could hazard more than a guess tbh

    I would prefer my vet to inspect a lump just to make sure it's nothing sinister. The earlier anything nasty is caught the more chance of a successful outcome.

    That's quite a large lump, I would definitely get your vet to check it. It could be a cyst but because of its location near eyes and ears, if it needed removing, the sooner the better as these things have to be cut quite deep, I know from personal experience.

    I doubt it is a fatty deposit... looks like a jag of some sort to me. I would visit the vet... I don't think endless tests would be required for something like this.

    My cat recently had a fatty deposit removed (they thought it might be something else), it looked nothing like this.

    I would definitely get a vet to take a look.
