Unhappy Hard Lump on side of Lip

Hello!

So I've had Mrs Tiggy Winkle for around a year (shes maybe 2? I was given her by someone who was leaving the country)
Anyway, she has suddenly grown a large lump on the side of her lip, it has blood speckled on it. She was given medication however it hasn't shown any effect on her lip lump situation.

The nearest 'exotic' animal hospital is in Seoul, which is a little far from me but I may have to make the trip ASAP. But I would like to know if anyone else has dealt with this or knows what it could be?


Has anyone dealt with such a lump? I'm really worried about my baby

Hello! I am also in Korea, but I live in Seoul. I don't mean to scare you, but hedgehogs are prone to cancer, so I believe that you should take the trip here to Seoul to get it checked out. What city do you live in? Maybe I can have my Korean boyfriend help to search your area for any exotic vets.

Looks like you're going to have to make that trip to the vet.

Looks like an oral tumour and will need to be checked by a vet.

If I may ask, which vet will you go to? The best one I've found is Acris, the animal medical center in the Gangnam area. They may be a bit pricer than other places, but they were the most gentle with my hedgehog and knew what they were talking about.
