Default Bump Below Eye

Yesterday morning I noticed that my hedgie had a bump below his eye that looked pretty big. I tried to feed him to see in his mouth if it was a tooth infection but I wasn't able to see. He seems to still be eating but does seem like its hard for him. The bump looked higher than near his mouth though so I couldn't tell if it was maybe an oral tumor? He is 4 years old.

I have pictures but it wont let me add.

To be honest it could be a few things, best advice we can give is to see a vet, someone may comment with possible things wrong, but non of us are vets (as far as I know)

The best thing to do is see your vet asap, they can remove it/treat it and do tests and things that non of us can!

Even if someone on here was a vet, they cant give you a diagnosis without examining your hog.

If he has a lump, he needs to see a vet. It's best to get these things checked out sooner rather than later too. Unfortunately they are prone to all kinds of lumps and bumps, some benign and some not, but only a vet will be able to give you a diagnosis.

I know that. I've noticed a lot of people post things like this so I was just curious to what people would assume it is. I have already made a vet appointment.

Images located at link above, I'm closing that thread as it gets confusing with two on the same topic as people reply to both.

If he is not eating as well, it is likely painful and needs to be seen sooner than later.

Cost at vets just vary from location to location and from procedure to procedure. Call the vet's office and talk to them. Make the appointment, and go in. If the cost is too high, talk to your vet about it. Some will work with you to reduce costs or to take payments to help you out.
