Question Male syrian hamster - red bump on genitalia

Hello!

This is my first post here! Iíve just joined as iím desperate for an answer and have not been able to find it anywhere.

Last night i noticed a red pimple looking bump on my hamsters penis (1yr old syrian).
I check him every day so i know this is new from yesterday.
I clean his cage every day (remove urine and poop), so iím not sure how this happened.

I was wondering if this was an abscess and what course of action should i take?
Is there a chance it will pop on itís own? How long should i wait until bringing him to a vet?

I have emailed a few vets asking for the price of draining it (as i suspect it is an abscess).

Any information/advice would be helpful!
Heís been my baby for 1yr now but heís my first hamster so iím still new to all this☺️

Iíve attached an image.

Thank you!
