Question Growth around female genitals

Hi,

Iíve recently noticed my 2 year old female Syrian has been acting off. Sheís been sleeping more. Finally caught her yesterday to find a lump around her vagina area, that wasnít there less than a week ago. She seems to be in no pain, and let me examine it easily.

Taking her to the vets this Tuesday, but wanted some ideas on what else it could be. Iím thinking benign cyst from experience, but Iím not sure.

Hi and welcome to HC!

Please let us know what the vet says. I wouldn't want to speculate because only a vet can give you a diagnosis.

The fact that she's sleeping more could be down to the fact that she's an old lady now and maybe slowing down generally.

Thank you for your reply!

Iím hoping it is a small benign growth if some sort. I do work at the vet Iím taking her to, and I know the vet is an exotic specialist and is amazing with small furries so Iím lucky in that aspect!

Iíll keep you all updated with her progress, keep your fingers crossed for me!

And Iím super happy Iíve found this forum thatís great with hamster care, husbandry and health! Super nice to see people who care for hamsters in the correct way

You are lucky to work at an exotic vet's so she'll be in good hands.

I could do with a job like that with seven hamsters and the occasional furry lodger, lol.

Yes, this is a friendly forum and i couldn't do without it.
Hope all goes well with your girl today and let us know the outcome.

Hi everyone!

Vet update: Turns out it was an abscess! My vet lanced it, then found another one under the original one and lanced that too! She survived the gas and procedure, had a quick dental and is currently on Baytril with Hibiscrub bathe twice daily!

Sheís doing so well and Iím so happy sheís still with me!

Thank you for your support and Iím happy to report back with good news

Thank you so much!

Only issue now is waking her up for her medicine which is stressing her a little bit, but I guess thatís a double edged sword- she has to have her meds!

Iíll keep you all updated with how she heals😁
