Exclamation My Hedgehog Mole?

Hi guys, so i've had Tiggy for nearly 3 weeks now.

When i took her to the vets, they noticed this brown lump on her back. They said its probably nothing but to just keep an eye on it and see if it grows etc...

Tonight, i gave tiggy a bath and dried her off, when drying her, the mole came off (if it was a mole, its just like a brown lump) and it has about 5 quills stuck in it. Now she has exposed skin with a bit of puss. She doesnt seem in pain as i've put her back in her cage, she had some water and a bit of food and shes just gone back to sleep.

The emergency vet wont answer. is this something i should be worried about? Theres no blood by the way, just puss.

Lumps and bumps are generally something to be concerned about. Had the lump been getting bigger before it fell off? You should definitely take her in to be looked at again. Safe the brown lump to give to the vets for testing, it could reveal a lot about the lump.
