Welcome to the board, jaskdad.

I'm not sure you have much choice about the vet. The only way to get a definitive answer and proper treatment is to make an appointment and have your cat looked at. If you can't handle the entire bill in one payment, perhaps your vet will allow installments?

My cat had a similar looking little bump, but right on the edge of her anus. It was called a "dog bite sarcoma". The Vet advised to leave it as it was benign and might not change but if it should grow we were to go back and have it removed before it got too big or did become malignant. We were OK for a couple of years till it began to get slightly bigger and we opted for surgery which went very well. It still wasn't malignant but they can change.

We could not have made any of these decisions without the Vet's input.
