    Hello, I was wondering If someone can help me please. My beautiful male Syrian hamster has a big swollen red lump at the bottom of his penis, and it looks like there is a tint of yellow too. I am worried It is infected.

    Here is information about my hamster -
    Age: From pet store we have had him for 1 1/2 years
    Gender: Male
    Species: Syrian hamster

    These are the details of my hamster's ailment -
    When did it start: I think it was on Monday, when I noticed a little red bump on his penis, but since then it has gotten bigger and swollen, it looks like there is a tint of yellow too now.

    He is still his usual very happy self and still eating.

    I would really appreciate It If someone could help,
    Thanks

    Tbh I’d speak to the vet tomorrow and send them the pic.

    If there’s pus, chances are he will need antibiotics.
