    Question Little brown growth on pigs tummy

    Noticed this little lump on my cavy this morning when playing with him, It's surrounded by hair loss and brown specs. I'm trying not to be a concerned parent but it's hard cause I don't know much about guinea pig skin conditions. Any help in guiding me towards proper treatment or anything is greatly appreciated. There are a couple pictures attached. The pig is almost 5 months old, healthy otherwise, male, well fed, happy, and handsome as can be.

    Lol, I did the same thing when I discovered Icarus' nipples. Complete freak out for a couple of minutes, then "oh, boy pigs have nipples too..." And Icarus is giving me the stink eye, "stop poking my tummy!"

    One of mine has a third nipple. I was rather freaked out when I discovered that.
