My cat has two sore toes and black around her toe, like growth.

Customer Question

My cat has two sore toes and black around her toe, like growth. Is this a skin cancer?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Cuddles, and she is 13
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cuddles,?
Customer: She has had skin tumors and acne before. She licks her paws alot but this is black growth around the nail. Do you charge for answers? I was just checking the web for answers or pictures.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
