My cat, only 8 and a half months old, has this swollen lump on his lower lip. It has a yellow tinge to it but seems to have grown in size. He has only had it for a couple days now. It is not causing him any bother eating or drinking. Just concerned as he’s very young and not sure what it could be?

Infection of some sort, maybe from a scratch. It is important in any case that he be seen by a vet as soon as possible.

Looks a lot like a rodent ulcer to me. Are you able to get to a vet, he will need meds. If you are not allowed to go to the vets, ask if you can send the photos in for his opinion.
