Q. My cat has brown spots on inside of lip that grow numerous and 3 pink bumps in straight like next to gun line on insode of lips

Answered By

A. Growths on the lip and gums can be an indication of a tumor, cyst, allergic reaction, infection or other issue forming in the mouth. It is best to have your vet take a look at the bumps and a sample taken to determine what the exact growth is as it can be caused by a number of different things. Your vet can then recommend treatment as needed to help resolve the issue.
