    I recently posted a thread about poorly hamster ears. I am now waiting for the cream to work for that. However...Harry now has a warty lup on his back. Under his fur it is small, fleshy and shiney!

    2 lumps on one hamster...can that be cancer? Both look like little warts basically! I don't think theyre growing...but not really sure.

    Thanks.

    I would take it to the vets, but when i had a hamster i came across a wart and it turned out to be a cyst. From what i can remember i was given a cream and it was fine from there (i was young though) so i think i was given a cream

    Could you be mistaking it for his scent glands?

    I have been given fucidin for his ear lup...will that work?

    The second lump is on his back...so don't think its the scent gland. Though the ear lump was considered whether it was his scent glands infection. But it is a lump.
