A lump the size of a tennis ball is pretty huge.
If you had a lump the size of a tennis ball on your stomach, I think you'd be very worried. Same goes here.

Good luck. I've never heard of this before.

Is it very hard? Not to scare you but my dog had a very hard lump on her leg and it was cancer. It didn't get that big until it was pretty advanced though.

Fortunately it's not a hard lump, it's just like a strip of loose skin hanging out.

It sounds like the 'fat-sack' that a lot of cats develop with age, particularly neutered females. But this should be soft and pliable, and not sensitive to touch. As always, if worried, give your vet a call.

Oh, geez. Okay, if that's what your talking about, it's fine.
I was thinking round like a tennis ball.

still, it could be a hernia, couldn't it? worth having someone take a look at it, if you don't know what it is. but I doubt there's any imminent danger.
