Hi! to Talk Budgies

I'm very sorry your little one has developed a mass.

The people on this forum are not professional vets. While the lump looks as if it may be a cyst or a tumor, we have no way of knowing that.

You need to have your budgie seen by an Avian Vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

If there are no Avian Vets in your area, then try to find an Exotic Veterinarian who has experience dealing with Small Birds.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

Thanks for the fast response. We are thinking to take her to the vet but it is cold outside and on the other hand we are uncertain whether this lump is normal or not?

No, the lump is not normal.

Wrap her cage in blankets or towels, heat up the car before taking the cage out to it and ensure she isn't in any cold drafts when you take her to the vet.

Please be sure to update us with what you find out.

Best wishes!

Hoping the vet will be able to prescribe a treatment plan for a full and speedy recovery for your little one.

At the moment she is fine, what we are worried about is that she will be scared during the time we will be taking her to the vet. She is untamed which makes us more nervous. What do you suggest we should do to make her calm?

Keep her cage covered and try to minimize the amount of handling you do- you’ll probably have to grab her, but do so with a cloth and move quickly into a darkened travel cage. You can also turn off the lights in the room to make it easier to grab her

We have been at the vet today.. He said that it's a kind of tumor caused by virus and it has to be removed before she scratch it and it starts bleeding. The surgery will be on Monday.
