My cat has a lump in his leg which is growing , we're not sure what it is, but it has been growing for the past year.
We're not sure what it is , but we took him to the vet for an x ray and tests, and the tests came back inconclusive.
Is it cancer? Or if not cancer what else could it be? We have had him since 2001 so he's pretty old.

Get some more tests done to be sure. Really though, animals get a lot of the same things humans get not just cancer. Sometimes we or they can get these lumps, sometimes they're harmless, sometimes they're cancerous, sometimes they're not cancerous but are still harmful. You literally can't tell if it's something bad or good til the tests come with some results.
One thing I will say though, not to get hopes up because I really don't know, and as I said even non cancerous can be harmful at times, but the fact it's been growing for a year now and he's still here and fine in other ways, is one good sign it isn't cancer. If it turned out to be cancer, and it's been there at least a year... your cat is a soldier... combine that with how old he is! His age alone is so good. He definitely had good innings and had a good life. Well done.
I've got my fingers crossed for him. Hope it comes back as something minor.0
