Hey Lissa .... Well congrats on helping your leo to a great recovery! I've read this whole thread and the thing that I'm most amazed by is your seemingly calm and willing patient. I find it incredible that a reptile would allow something like this to happen without trying to bite or get away.
Mind you I do have an older male veiled that has let me apply polysporin and help him with other small problems. He's tried to squirm a few times but somehow knew I was helping him ... something about the way he looked at me!!
Maybe you should become a vet?? You certainly seem to have the knack for it.

Thanks Dave!!! That's the coolest compliment I've gotten all week!!! Actually, I've been thinking really hard about the Vet idea...EXOTICS of course, lol!!! I'll let everyone know if it works out. The first thing I'd do is sign up to be the free advice vet for here. We really need one who knows about our little fellas!

take her to a vet now!
I dont doubt your care. In fact, I was going to try this. mabye you have something different, I dont know, but I dont want this to happen to anyone else. My gecko has a similar lump. rather than trying my hand at impromptu surgery, I took her to a vet. as it turns out, its a tumor. its malignant. she has 3 weeks.
if your gecko had a tumor 2, then it might still b possible to save it. dont make my mistake.

I found this board today, because I noticed a lump under my leopard gecko's eye, went straight to google, punching leopard gecko tumor, and your post was top of the list. I lanced and drained Pigs lump, got two small hard things and some gooey pus out of it. She is active, but her eye is still swollen shut.
Anyhow, it's been a couple months since your first post on this thread, I wondered how Morph is doing now?

Leopard geckos are pretty resilient. She would have done fine w/o the antib. Dosing with prescription meds is very tricky and I never recommend it because there are long term effects here. This was not a bad infection but knowing the difference between a pustule and tumor is critical in these situations due to proximity of the brain. I suggest to try working at a vet office, because even though you may love animals, it's still the PEOPLE you have to deal with... a lot of people with disposable pets.
