    Small Bump On the Top of her Head

    Hey Guys,
    So one of my female ball pythons (Juno,) has a small bump on the top of her head (right inbetween her eyes.) Since my vet moved, I'm currently looking for a new vet. In the mean time I was wondering if y'all have any input or experience on this.

    There is no sign of infection, or irratation both on her head and inside her mouth. It's just a small bump underneath the skin, and appears to be about half the size of a BB pellet (my best guess, maybe 3 milimeters in diameter. Pimple sized.) Also she has started going off feed (not a good sign. ). My worst and growing fear is that it's cancerous.

    Normally I would have pics, but the bump isn't easy to photograph (I've tried many times already.)

    My IJ had a bump on his nose, he ended up having to have it surgically removed. It was a mass of infected necrotic tissue, it would flare up and subside but then really got big. It was probably due to a rub on the cage latch, not totally sure what caused it though.
    There is a thread in the Morelia section, I don't know how to link it from my phone and tapatalk. There is a pic of it though.

    Yes... Soft enough to feel it as flesh, but hard enough to not go away with pressure.
