    Benign hair tumour

    Hi I found a lump on the back of my guinea pig which was not affecting his eating or movement and took him to the vet. The vet took a sample and diagnosed benign (thank goodness) hair tumour. She has recommended removal of the tumour in case it turns nasty. I have looked up information on...

    Hard Lump On Chin/jaw

    Boris, my 4 year old boar, has literally just developed a hard lump on his chin/left jaw area. It's sitting directory under his jaw bone, but isn't causing trouble eating or seeming to bother him at all, even when touched.
