A. Not sure exactly where you're describing, but if these are in your cat's "armpit" area they could be lymph nodes. Lymph nodes get enlarged when there is infection or inflammation present in the area, and they can also enlarge with certain cancers. It's pretty impossible to tell what a lump is just by looking at it, so I encourage you to get your vet to check these out and do some diagnostics to figure out what's going on.
