Family cat has some kind of hard mass between his left leg and his crotch, and another small one around the groin area. What should I do?

We have had this cat since 2000. He is 11 years old, but is still very healthy. I discovered the larger mass a few months ago when I was combing him. It really didn't freak me out at the time, but I've been watching it. And it seems to have gotten a little bigger? And today, I was feeling it again, then discovered the smaller one, feels like a large pea or small grape. The masses don't seem to bother him at all, he doesn't do anything when I start feeling them. My only guess is its some kind of cyst? But I'm no vet.
I'm 18 and I live with my parents, I told me mom we should take him to the vet and get him checked out. My mom keeps turning it around and keeps saying "you pay for it" or "we will when it starts to hurt him". Were doing fine financially. The lack of compassion is really getting to me.
What should I do?
