    My hamster has developed a lump on his chest area and I was wondering if you know what it is/is it serious? Pictures are attached and he’s a 1year 3month old Syrian hamster, thanks in advance. If the photo isn’t very clear feel free to ask for more.

    Syrians can be quite prone to developing tumours.

    I would let a Vet see him.

    I agree with Rafa, get a vet appointment as it could be a tumour.
