Maybe it could be an abbcesss of some sort? You should go to an experianced small animal vet to let them check it out. Good luck to you and your piggy!

Hi and welcome

Please have it vet checked promptly; any lump needs a hands-on examination. All we can do is guess as much as you, unfortunately.

Just what I thought, a nasty little abcess. Luckily it was an abcess and not a tumor. Hope Fig feels better in a few days! Keep us updated.
