Default Please help to identify problem!

My Russian dwarf hamster is 1.5 years old. Recently I noticed a growth (?) near his leg. Can anyone help to identify what this is and if I need to take him to a vet?

Its hard to say whether its a tumor, absess, or other growth from just a photo but either way he definitely needs to see a vet!

It would be a good idea to get him seen by a vet who specialises in exotics. To me it looks like some sort of mass/tumour - unsure if it benign or malignant - however difficult to be certain from a photo s might be something else.
