Default A bump/bubble on chest

Kiki has this bump/bubble of some sort on her chest close to her front right leg. I have never seen this before. Should I see a doctor? Does anybody know what this is?

Go to a vet, thats the best thing to do. Even if any one on here can tell you what it is, they wont be able to do much, a vet can give any medication needed and find out what it is.

Pictures would help, sounds like it could be an abscess or blister from your description. But as Ria said you'll need to get it checked out by a vet regardless. Hedgehogs are very prone to anything from an abscess to cancer so it's best to go as quickly as you can before they develop more and become more serious.

Hoping she'll be ok, please keep us posted.
