Epidermal Inclusion Cysts

These cysts are composed of a think covering over a lump of sebum which is a fatty secretion. Sebaceous cysts are the most common type of tumor you can find on the skin of your cat, but it is less common for a cat to get these cysts than it is for a dog. Most likely, these cysts will become infected and will have to be drained.

Epidermal Inclusion Cysts experience by - Tricia
I have a female cat the has a big knot by its upper right shoulder and it feels squishy, I am extremely concerned because she means so very much to me and I dont want to lose her. She is a mother to 4 kittens and they also need her. I go to dialysis 3 times a week and I look forward to seeing her and giving her attention everyday even when I am not feeling good. So what do I need to do in order to keep her around? Thanks
