Default Tumor?

Hi everyone,
I'm a newbie hedgehog mom. I have only had my hedgie Jasmine for about a month. When i first got her she was a little ball of huff, and I noticed a spot of bright red on her head when she was curled up. I thought it was due to being in a ball. It seemed to go away when she was uncurled. I haven't seen it since, until a couple of days ago. I saw a giant red patch/lump on her head behind her ear. Again, while she was curled up it looked big and angry. When she was relaxed, it seemed to diminish. Any ideas? She has a vet appt. Friday.

Hi and welcome
It's hard to say what it is so it's a good thing you've already booked a vet app. It could be an infected quill, abscess or tumour.

Hoping it's nothing too serious, best to get it checked asap and get treatment though. Let us know what the vets says

Thank you. I guess I just needed reassurance. ☺️
