Exclamation Red Bump on Leg

Hi everyone!

My hedgehog Pigwidgeon will be 3 at the end of March. He has had a red pump on his leg for at a least a couple months. It has so far stayed the same size. It is hard and is in his skin (it moves when I move the skin). It is right above his joint. I've inspected him and his skin looks good, no other bumps. He's eating and behaving normally. He walks fine. It doesn't seem to hurt him (at least not much) because he allows me to touch it. I've bathed him and changed his carefresh bedding multiple times since it's shown up. He doesn't have any new food or bedding. It doesn't look inflamed per se, but is red. Only 1 or maybe 2 mm in size.

Does anyone have any ideas of what it could be? I'm going to try and add pictures. I usually overreact to his health problems (I just recently took him to two vets about his eye and it turned out to be nothing), so I'm not planning on taking him to the vet unless it gets bigger or changes. I plan to watch it carefully and inspect him every day.

I would appreciate any ideas of what it could be! Thank you!
