Default Female Hamster's Back Lumping Out

My female hamster is 2.5 years old and I posted a thread about my female hamster having vaginal bleeding. I brought her to the vet and it was a Urinary Tract Infection. However, yesterday while I was carrying her, I noticed that he back was lumping out. What should I do? Thanks

She does look quite hunched, has she finished treatment for the UTi? Sometimes this can be a sign that they are in pain or unwell but it’s also fairly common for them to look hunched in old age too & your ham is a really good age now.
I keep an eye on her & see how she goes, if she seems fine in herself then it may be nothing to worry about but if you see any other signs that she may be unwell I would go back to the vet.

Hi Hammyboy, Is it a lump or is she actually hunching over, either way I think she needs to be seen by the vet again. If she is hunching she may be in pain and may need a pain killer, If it is a lump then that will need to be looked at by the vet. I hope you can sort her out. Goodluck.
