    For the past month or so, one of my African Clawed Frogs has had an increasingly large lump on the side of his face. I have searched and searched, but have yet to find anything similar to this so far. I am attaching some pictures so you can see what it looks like. It's hard to get a very good picture with my digital camera. It's mostly smooth and the same color as his skin, but it has a bright spot red in the center.

    Is this a tumor? Or maybe a fungal infection? Does anyone have a possible treatment to recommend? I have no idea, and any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. I've had these three frogs for about 4 years now with no problems whatsoever, until this one.

    I know I have not given much information, but I will answer any questions to the best of my knowlege.

    Please give me good news. :sad:

    Thanks in advance,
    Boshkabob

    My original pics were huge, so I've resized them a bit... If you want to see the full size images, they are here:
