Q: Lump under skin on cat's neck?

Zeus has a small hard-ish lump under the skin on the back of his neck. It almost looks like a little BB pellet size and seems to be grey in color. I did some research and came up with some kind of cyst possibly? I tried to get a picture but it came out blurry. Anyone else ever seen this? He is very healthy, eats, drinks well and poops/pees fine.
*Update...errrr, oops, in talking with my shelter staff peeps, turns out that it is Zeus' microchip poking up some as on the back of the neck is where they do the microchips when they are adopted from the shelter. As long as it stays in and doesn't come 'out' we're in good shape. Never thought of the microchip!

I would get him Vet checked ASAP. Could be nothing then again could
be something serious.

The best thing to do is make sure of what it is by seeing your vet. It could be nothing, but why take the chance that it could be something?
