If it was an abscess then it would have gotten bigger over the last few days and you would notice for sure. Sounds like a thing that you may want to leave alone and just monitor. If it gets big really quickly then you need to get it examined further. I am wondering maybe a salivary gland block could be happening? Without seeing or palpating the area I could only guess and that can do more harm than good.

My guinea pig has a bump as well, I learned it was a harmless cysts. You can get rid of it yourself. Its not too hard. I'll look for the link to the site where the method is described
