My iguana is approximately 12yo. I just noticed a mass/lump in his dewlap. It's about a 3/8" ball so bigger than a pea but not quite the size of a marble. It seems to be on the cartilage inside the dewlap. I could use some help identifying what it might be.

Hi droel, I'm not a vet and I can't see what the bump looks like so I can't give a diagnosis but I can take a couple guesses. It could be from an injury that occurred in the past or swelling from a current injury. It could also be a tumor. I would keep an eye on it and if it looks like it's getting bigger or causes irritation to your iguana I would take him/her into the vet immediately. You can always take her/him in now just to be on the safe side.
If only I had something to eat. . . . . mmmm pumpkin flowers
