Please take your cat to the vet to have the lump evaluated.

You need a vet, and you need to see a vet IMMEDIATELY!!! The best help we
can give you is to stress the importance of getting a diagnosis as soon as
possible. This simply isn't something that can be diagnosed (or advice
given for treatment) in a newsgroup.

*Please* take your cat to a vet, and then please update us so we will the
results of the examination.

what does your vet say?

Or were you planing on operating yourself? Got some surgical tools you
bought at sears?

Sounds like it may be a sarcoma. Your cat needs to see a vet ASAP.

A lump in the right rear leg could be a vaccine-associated-sarcoma
(fibrosarcoma). Rabies vaccines are usually given in the right rear leg so
in the event the cat develops a VAS, the leg can be amputated to stop the
spread of cancer and save the cat's life. If you wait another month or
two-and he dies an agonizing death, you'll know it was a fibrosarcoma-- or
you could take him to a vet, now- right now- and save his life.

What would you do if you had a fast-growing lump in your leg? How long would
you wait to see a doctor? Just curious.
