    That doesn't look good. I have no idea what might be causing it, but I'd definitely discuss it with my Vet.

    Have you taken your cat to the vet yet, Lewis810? Is he okay? That nipple does look strange, and it appears to be a bit inflamed around the area. Please let us know how things are going!

    Yes! It’s a mammory cyst but she said it’s soft and not bothering him it’s better to leave it alone. She told me to watch it and if it gets bigger or starts bothering him then they will drain it Thanks for following up!

    Hi I noticed your picture my cat looks to have the same exact thing, how is your cat doing? Did anything ever come of it?

    My male cat also has this. Soft and doesn't appear to hurt. Is it okay?

    The above poster's cat had a mammory cyst and the Vet advised it be left alone unless it got larger. This could be the case with your cat too, but there is really no way of knowing for certain without him being seen by a Vet.
