Default Purple lump

My hedgie has a huge purple lump on mouth. It doesn't seem to be bothering him though. He's acting normal and eating fine. Does anyone know what this might be and if it's treatable?

He needs to go to the vet as soon as you can get him there. It's likely either an abscess or tumor. Either way, it needs to be looked at by a vet to see what it is, and how it can be treated. If it's a tumor, you will probably be looking at surgery or some bad news. Good luck.
