I would consider going in, however, I couldn't find the bump earlier when I looked, and I just tried two more times. I may have made it sound huge. To me, *anything* unusual is huge. But really, it was more like a small pimple, and I don't think it could be related to anything especially nasty.

That said, if we can find it, and if it's changed, you can bet we'll be going in to the vet this week.

I honestly appreciate the warnings. Thank you for being concerned about my little Fluffy Pants.

I just came into this thread & please take Ember in to see your vet! Any lump in the neck area, especially after vaccinations there (which should NEVER be done - NO vaccinations are supposed to be done in the scruff anymore!) is suspect. Take her in asap & have it biopsied.

Ember is five and a half. She hasn't gotten any vax except for her first rabies (I think) since I adopted her when she was seven months old. Again, I think I'm being, as Ned Flanders would say, a "nervous Nelly,"
that's not unusual.

Lance - how old is she?  Vaccinations have not been given in the
neck/scruff in quite some time. Most of my cats have never gotten a
vaccination in the neck, but most of my cats are relatively young.

It may just be a pimple. It doesn't seem to go deeper than the skin, and
small. After reading about vax site sarcomas, I don't *think* it could
be that. I don't
know where vax are given when they're given in the neck, but it's
certainly not
on the scruff. I think and hope I'm getting anxious over nothing.

Lance could the bump you discovered at Ember's neck
could be a gland ? Is it at the base of her neck?
