Default Please help!! Hamster doesn't seem like himself black testicle area?

Hi

Can you help I'm worried. Our hamster recently escaped and we found him 2 days later. He doesn't seem the same and last night my son heard him screech in his enclosure. He's 2 month old

He just stretched upwards and I noticed he has a black growth above testicle area what is this? I've attached picture

Hi there - that doesn't look normal and he needs to see a vet as soon as possible.
It could be a prolapse or a blockage and I'd say it needs checked urgently.

Hi i don't know what it is, but whatever it is your hamster needs urgent medical attention. I hope you can get him the help he needs. Goodluck.

It looks like necrotic tissue. I really would seek vet help for this. I'm not a vet and haven't seen him personally so I don't want to guess what it is.
