Default Tumor?

I know hedgehogs have many things that can go wrong and I've experienced a few with Rosie already. I'm always thinking the worst now. She has a bad foot (long story, if you want to know you can read my first posts on my homepage on here) and it acted up again (swollen and infection). I also noticed a lump on her jaw. I thought it was just swollen because of the infection or she was storing food in her mouth and figured it would go away with antibiotics. However, it's been a week or so after antibiotics and her leg is back to normal but her face is a bit worse. I know hedgies can get tumors and I have an appointment to get her checked out soon, but I was just wanting to know what I should do. She is eating, pooping, and acting completely normal so I'm not immediately concerned for her general health but I'm still freaking out about the possibility of a tumor. How do you go about dealing with a hedgies surgery? Would it be easier if I didn't get it cut out if the doctor decides it won't affect her eating? If it will get worse (I don't know if I could ever bring myself to do this) should I do the surgery or have her put down? She's my little girl and I'm so scared.
