    It could be an abcess, a large infection. He needs to see a vet right away because this could be the case. An abcess is very dangerous because it could rupture and release toxins into the body and kill the cat or the infection could spread down into the chest cavity and kill him either way they are deadly. The vet will most likely drain it and put the cat on antibiotics and should not be very expensive. Call the vet and ask the receptionist how much they cost, either way regardless of the cost it is seeking help for your sick pet is the responsible thing to do.

    If your in the UK, take him to the nearest RSPCA vet, they are very cheap and if you can't pay strait away, they will give you as much time as you need.

    If your in the USA then do the same thing, I'm sure they have an equivalant, if the problem is an infection of some kind it must be treated as soon as possible. In future, try to keep a bit of cash put aside in case of medical problems:)

    Phone the vets, they'll give advice for free, or go on the internet and see if they can help. Good luck hope this helps.

    Try a university or contact the SPCA, perhaps they'll help. Please take your cat soon though. My friends cat had something similar and it turned out to be a tumor. He's fine now but your cat should get checked out.

    Omega-3 oils daily and a magnet applied all over the face should help.

    Your cat could have just banged it's face, or it could be a cyst.

    Is it a sudden thing, or has it appeared gradually?

    He could have been in a fight.
