Unhappy Lump on neck

Hi,
Recently I have noticed my four or five year old hedgie, Penny, has developed a lump on her neck. She was still eating and drinking. We took her to the vet two days ago and they said it might be an abscess that they could drain if the swelling goes down. They gave her steroids and antibiotics. The swelling was supposed to go down in 72 hours so hopefully we'll see improvements soon. However, she is unable to eat now (I assume due to how hard the cat food is) and I have been syringe feeding her. I am aware that this could be a tumor but am hoping for the best. Please let me know if you have had any similar situations.
