Default my hedgie has two red bumbs on his forehead?

My hedgehog Milo has two red bumps on his forehead just right where the quills start to form. one above his left eye and the other above his right eye. I just got him about six days ago and is still skittish of me so I can only look at them for they are pretty visible. I have heard and done some research of this myself and didn't find much other than the fact that red bumps can be or are tumors and/or cancerous. I am a little scared and nervous of what this could be..

What do I do. Should I leave it be and see if it gets better or worse. Or should I call the vet and get them to look at him.

I would call the vet and set up an appointment as soon as possible. They're quite large already, so I wouldn't wait any longer.

I've had my hedgehog for a month now and when I've been holding her and bathing her this last week I've noticed around the top of her legs and lower stomach have been really red. Is this normal?
