Q. My cat has a soft round spot size ping pong ball a little more than half way down on right side near the backbone and in front of the back hip area.

A. I'd recommend getting this checked out by your vet as soon as possible. There are many types of non-cancerous growths that appear under the skin of our pets, however the only way to know which one this is is to have your vet examine it, then do a biopsy. Hopefully he can just use a needle and get a few cells out to examine under the microscope, but sometimes we don't get a diagnosis this way so we either have to remove the entire mass or get a piece of it and have a pathologist examine it.
