Unhappy Growth on Skippy's cheek?

Hello all -- I've been a reader of this forum for over a year (summer 2007, when I first considered getting a hedgehog) but have never had to ask a question (thanks to the large amounts of information here, and due to Skippy being such a lovely and healthy pet so far!)..

Unfortunately, Skippy seems to have a growth on her right cheek. It's right under where her whiskers grow out -- do you think it could be an ingrown whisker? She doesn't seem to be bothered by it at ALL -- I can touch the area and she's ok (well as ok as she normally is when I touch her face, which is grumpy) and she's eating/drinking/exercising very normally. I'm really hoping it's not an oral tumor, as I've read some people have dealt with here? It seems a little high on her cheek to be that....?

Thank you from me and Skippy all for ANY help / thoughts!

YES! Thank you so much - that's exactly what it looks like! I'll try a dab of neosporin and keep my fingers crossed that it clears up soon! Thanks again
