Hello guys, my bearded dragon developed a growth on his head two months ago in which I took him to the vet on July 7th, the results came back a week later and the CT Scan came out inconclusive on whether it was either a abcess, hematoma, or a aneurysm. The first two weeks the mass grew in size and just a week and half ago it was turning red and looked like it was going to burst. However, now it is turning darker color and hasn't seemed to grow anymore.

Please post a pic of the dragons head -- what kind of UVB are you using coil or long tube fixture? Surface basking temps are what and how are you taking them? Analogs are inaccurate

Hello,

Do you have any pictures you could post of his head?
How is he doing today?
What you could do if there is still an area which is like an
abscess, etc, you can use some raw unpasteurized honey
or silver gel or cream on it to see if it helps out for the area.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
