Default Help. Possible tumor.

I am pokie's second owner. I believe he is around two years old. He has always enjoyed his boy time but recently I have noticed an enlargement in his penis. He is acting normal and running and eating properly. I have two hedgehogs and compared to my other one it does not look right. My other hedgehog does not noticeably have boy time so I am wondering if it is this? If someone has experienced the same thing please help. I am thinking about just taking him to the vet to get checked out. I have a picture from last night of what it looks like. Sorry for the graphic picture.

If it always stays out, you should go to the vet. He could have something stuck in the sheath or an infection causing swelling. The penis should always be able to retract into the sheath completely.
