Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Has he had any vomiting, gagging, or retching?

Can he keep water down?

Where does he seem uncomfortable?

Any chance he ate something that could have gotten caught in his stomach?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Where on the side is the lump? How large?

Can you take a photo of this to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web link here for me to have a peek.
