Back with my grandparents now. I found a lump on Memphis (my guinea pig) and several smaller hard lumps on his lower stomach. We took him to the vet and I was terrified it was cancer, but it turns out it's a cyst and the smaller lumps are his lymph nodes reacting to it. So fortunately he's cancer free, but he will need surgery to drain and clean it out, which has me nervous.
They put him on antibiotics but they gave him diarrhea, so they had to take him off and he's now on a special fiber diet to help get him normal again. After surgery they're going to try him on one that they think he'll tolerate better.
*Update* He's home with us now, active and eating. He's on antibiotics and pain medication. The wound was left partially open because apparently with cysts it needs to heal that way to reduce the likelihood of it reoccurring. His turds have been softer than usual, though not as bad as last time, so we'll have to keep an eye on that and take him in again if it gets too bad, it's probably from his meds, but otherwise my little guy seems to be doing okay. Thank you all for your support.
