Default Huge pink/red bump on Hedgie

So my Hedgie has a huge bump on his forehead,right above his left eye. It's a pink/red color,and I'm not sure if it's soft or hard because he absolutely will not let me near the spot. It's big enough to where it's almost covering the top of his eye. Does anyone know what it could be? He doesn't seem to be bothered by it,besides not letting me touch it but that's probably just because he's a grump

Go see a vet asap! It could be a tumor.

It could also be an abscess, an ingrown quill, or something else. Yes, a vet visit is a good idea to see what's going on.
