Hi everyone! When I was washing my 5 year old hedgehog Nimbus this evening, I noticed a bump on the upper part of one of his front legs that I hadn’t seen before. I had last given him a full bath and nail trimming about three weeks ago (he doesn’t get very dirty super quickly as he’s gotten older). It’s not a cage injury, no bleeding, extra sensitivity or abnormal behavior from him that I’ve seen, just a strange bump that I’m worried could either be a cyst or a tumor. I can take him to a small animal hospital here in my area if there’s cause for concern, just wanted to know what others thought/if you’ve seen something like this before. I know he’s getting older in age and health concerns could become more of a potential issue to look out for.
