Hello all, my pet has had this lump on his leg since I got him but I never thought until recently that it could be a concern. It’s my first hedgehog so I’m not sure if it’s normal or a tumor. He’s 6 months old.

I’m sorry I don’t see the lump , what leg is it?
Thank you for the reply! Maybe it’s normal? But under his legs his lower belly area is pink and look fat to me. I heard of hedgehogs getting tumors and I was worried that might be it. You can see it’s pink and bulgy under the leg.

If you are concerned that its something not normal, take him to a veterinarian to verify. However, without knowing how familiar you are with male hedgehog anatomy... are you seeing his testicles? Hedgehogs carry them internally. But, you may notice them when you hold him certain ways more than at others, and sometimes some males are just more noticeable. Again, if it doesn't look like its normal, take him to a veterinarian to have him examined.
