my cat has a bump/lump near her butt

my cat has a bump/lump near her butt. when she lifted her tail i saw some kind of lump and i dont know what it is, it wasnt there yesterday when she went to the groomers and today she has been licking at it all day and walking weird and doesnt sit right...what is it?

It is impossible to say. if it has come up over night it could be a bite of some sort (perhaps something at the groomers) or it could be a reaction to something, like a shamphoo or spray. It may just be coincidence and was not caused by the groomers but could be a infected gland or cyst. The only thing you can do is to get them to the vets as soon as you can to have it diagnoses and treated. Infections can set in quickly and need antibiotics to treat.

My cat has a bumo near her bump. And i just noticed it. It seems like its by the start of her leg. And its not on her other side. What is it?

There is no way of telling by just looking at it. It could be a growth or it could be an abscess. Either way a lump anywhere needs to be examined urgently by a vet. the sooner you know the better the outcome.
