i’m pretty sure tumors are hard. You said it’s squishy so it sounds more like an abcess which would most likely be filled with /infection. I’m sorry I don’t know what to do to treat it. My tokay has only had stuck shed.

Hello...

If you see like a yellowish and the skin is covering it... If yes, first choice would to take him to the vet, if that fails you miserably then here are the second choice!

1. put on some rubber plastic gloves surgeon gloves to protect yourself..
2. get some hydrogen peroxide solution and antibiotic ointment, q-tips and a sharp clean axle knife..
3. If possible put him in an isolated tank with a wash cloth or paper towels as his bedding so the oil doesn’t collect all the bedding in the tank.
4. Once the gloves are on, you might have to fight with the gecko to get him in your grip.. Need a firm grip of him so you can tend it wound.. either you handle him or get some help. So once you remove the dead skin that is loose from it body or pop the bubble if it has lumps on it.. then squeeze the out of it, until you see nothing but blood.. Once u see nothing but blood then pour some Hydrogen peroxide in a to a cap and use q-tips to tend his wound.. Please dont use the same q-tip each time you tend the wound, throw it away and replace it with a clean one.. Once the Peroxide is done bubbling then put some antibiotic ointment on a q-tip (just a little) and rub it on his wound. So I say do this for at least 2 to 4 days two times daily and keep a close eye on him.. Make sure he got food... Feed him giant mealies that way he wont have to worry abt the crix trying to feed off of him..

Good luck and keep me posted on your baby..
