    What is this lump on right side of cats face?

    Should I be worried and take him to the vet, or is it just something normal and unharmful?

    Re: What is this lump on right side of cats face?

    I wouldn't rely on the advice of people on this forum, who can only judge by a photo. The swelling needs to be felt and examined close up. Maybe even a sample needs to be analysed. My advice: take him to a vet.

    PS Welcome to the forum. Please come back and let us know what the outcome is.

    A very warm welcome to the forum.

    Yes, I agree with Peter. Whilst the cat doesn't look distressed by it, whatever it is, it clearly shouldn't be there and needs professional diagnosis and if necessary treatment.
    All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
    If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
    And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. Planning to take him to the vet on Monday, will post what the condition was here, to give an idea what this might be to other owners.

    Good luck with that, Ethan. Hope very much it turns out to be benign.

    Thanks for the advice everyone! About 2 or so hours before I was going to take him to the vet, the lump bursted. My cat was experiencing some discomfort while it was there, but now he seems back to normal.

    That is nice to know :). Glad it worked itself out!

    I'm glad, too. But I think you should still take him to the vet, to make sure that the wound does not get infected.

    I wonder if a foxtail of somesort had gotten in-bedded into her face... I agree with LPC you may still want to have the Vet take a look at it.
