Question Female hamster lumps

Hi im new to hamster central and not sure how to post a thread. My hamster Finnley is a bit over 2 years old and is a Syrian hamster. I've noticed she has 2 lumps on both of her sides which I'm guessing are tumors but they arent causing her any problems. 2 nights ago I noticed on her female area that there was a lump on that part. I looked again earlier and noticed it was more red and still there and I dont know what to do because she is over 2 and other than the bump on that bit she is acting completely normal, eating and drinking, using the bathroom, etc. I'm so scared and dont know what to do.

Default Re: Female hamster lumps

Hello and welcome to the forum.

None of us are able to give medical advice but that looks like a prolapse to me and needs urgent attention. You could try ease it back in but I wouldn't advise it. It's important to get it seen to asap as it can dry out and drop off. I understand she may be acting normal and is old but hamsters can still live active lives for many months at 2 years old. She may have tumours which could also be pushing it out. Sending healing vibes, keep us updated x
Feel free to ask me about rat advice too
