    Guinea Pig Lump/growth

    My Guinea Pig has a growth/lump on the centre of his back. It has a scab in the centre and in my opinion looks like it is filled with something, as if I squeezed it (which I don't plan on doing) something would come out. This is especially due to the scab in the middle seeming like it goes deep...

    Abdominal Lump

    My female guinea pig has a firm, grape sized lump on her lower abdomen. It is near a teat, at a spot where she would occasionally bite herself, leaving wounds or bruising which would heal quite quickly. She is almost 7 years old and does not seem to be in any pain. Anyone seen this on their pigs?
