Cute gray funny baby kitten in gray cloth

My cat has a lump on her back, when we squeeze it clear liquid comes out and it goes down for a few days. But it always seems to come back, is it anything to worry about?

Ask the Vet: “My cat has a lump on her back, when we squeeze it clear liquid comes out and it goes down for a few days. But it always seems to come back, is it anything to worry about?
“我的貓背上有一個腫塊,當我們擠它的時候會有液體流出,接下來的幾天腫塊會消下去,但過一段時間它總會再次出現。這是需要擔心的現象嗎?

Q&A with Dr Pauline Taylor, BVM&S MACVSc

DR. PAULINE SAYS:

Probably not, but without analysis of the fluid and palpating around the area I can’t be sure. It sounds like a cyst, and if the fluid is a little sticky it most likely comes from a sebaceous gland that has a blocked exit. When you squeeze, the blocked exit opens up. I’d monitor the lump and be prepared to discuss it with your vet.

應該不用擔心,但在未對腫塊裏流出的液體作出分析,以及對附近區域進行觸診前,我不能確切的回答你。聽上去它像是一個囊腫,如果流出的液體有點黏稠的話,它可能來自於一個閉合的皮脂腺,而當你擠壓它的時候,便打開了它封閉的出口。我會監察着這個腫塊,並會和你的獸醫討論
