The vet should do a fine needle biopsy and see what is there.

I took in a little guy many years ago with knees that looked like that. I knew the history of the hedgehog and the swollen knees started around 5-6 months old. My memory escapes me and I've forgotten what the diagnoses was but have written his new owners to see if they remember.

The vet can do a fine needle biopsy simply by inserting a needle into the swollen area and drawing off some fluid to test.

I have not heard from the owners of the hedgehog I mentioned and I don't remember details but I believe it was considered something hereditary and hedgie lived a normal lifespan with it.
