I think my oldest girl Jellybean (about 10-11 months old) has a tumor. It's on her underside next to one of her hind legs. It's very noticeable today but wasn't yesterday (she gets tummy kisses every day). Do tumors grow that quickly or is it possibly an abscess? How do I tell the difference? I know tumors can be removed successfully, but how often do rats die from complications? Can there be tumors in that area that can't be removed for some reason? I'm of course going to get her to a vet, but I wasn't expecting to have to deal with tumors so soon so I'm freaking out a little bit :(
