Default HELP! My hedgie has a strange growth on her right eye.

Hello everyone, I am new to this website, but my Albino Hedgehog Ellie is 1.5 years old. I picked her up today and it looked like her right eye was rolling behind her head, but with a closer look I think that it is actual a growth on the inside of her eye and I know cancer is very common in hedgehogs so I am very worried. I have contacted my vet but cannot get her in for another couple days and want to know if anyone knows anything about what this might be or how expensive the treatment usually is? I have attached a photo so you can see what it looks like. Any feedback is greatly appreciated thank you so much!

Aw, your poor baby
I don't have any experience with this, but am wondering if you could pressure the vet to take a look at her sooner? I would be worried she could lose her eye if its left too long. I'm glad you have an appointment scheduled though. Let us know what the vet says. Good luck and quills crossed for something not too serious.
