Default Lump on forehead and quill loss on/around lump

I'm new to the site and to handling hedgies, Lily, was given to me about 3 weeks ago by a neighbor because she was moving I had realized there was a little bit of weird looking skin on her forehead but it was subtle and I assumed that's just how hedgies looked, but now I've noticed Lily scratching a lot at night and now a big lump appeared on her forehead! I'm making an appointment with the vet ASAP but I'm scared and wanted to know if anyone could tell me what it could possibly be!!

It could be anything from a tumour to an infection. You need to take her to a vet to find out and to have it treated.
