Lump on cat

Species: cat | Category: medical-surgical | Submitted: 28 April 2009 09:17AM | viewed 4303 times
Q Simon asks about tommy (cat) :

My cat has just developed a balloon like lump just inside its ear. It is about the size of a small finger nail. It looks like it is full of blood. Any ideas what it is please?

Q Our vet says: It could be a haematoma which is a blood filled lump in the ear flap caused by a blood vessel bursting. It usually occurs as the result of scratching or head shaking and is often associated with an ear infection. If left untreated this will cause the ear to become deformed as the blood inside coagulates and gets resorbed into the body. It is worth taking your cat to your vet to get this properly diagnosed and treated.
