I have a pet rat named Silver and she has a tumor in her back leg near her abdomen. It doesn't seem to be causing her any pain as of yet. I am just concerned that it may grow or be malignant. Has anyone else had a rat with this problem? If so, please contact me via email at stephaniemhilton420@gmail.com. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Is the tumour in the skin in front of her hind leg? It's a very common spot for a benign mammary tumour. Can you post a pic?

with your hand there, is it pushing the tumor up? When you put your fingers around the tumor, where does it seem to attach to the body? flank, higher up the leg/side?
