Hi all! This is my first time posting here, I've got female sugar glider around 8 months old that I've not had long.

I'm a little concerned about a hard lump that's developed on top of the right side of her skull near her ear.
She had an abscess last month that I got drained by a vet but these seems a little different as it feels almost like a hard ball under her skin. I can't say whether it came on suddenly or gradually as it's not that noticeable as her fur covers it but when I touched it, it felt the size of a pea!
She isn't bothered with my touching it and she's really happy and healthy aside from the bump.

I will be taking her to the vets but it the meantime, I was wondering if anyone had ever had anything similar? Is it possible she's just bumped her head while playing like when children bang their heads and it causes a nasty looking bump?
 Look what I found on Ebay
