Rayrays lump

Hey everyone
Rayray has had a small hard lump growing on his hip for a few weeks now. I'm upset, however, I've not gotten myself into too much of a state over it.
He is healthy other than that, a bit of fur loss. He eats and drinks normally, no change in his personality.
I'm assuming that because its small and hard and not really getting any bigger that it's a malignant tumour?
It seems to be a bit itchy on him, but other than that it doesn't seem to bother him.
I just really need to know if I'm doing the right thing just by leaving it alone and letting things happen in it's own time? It might be hard for me to accept, but will it.. uhhm.. make him pass away? I don't know what to do? I'm a bit lost in this situation I geuss. If you could tell me a bit about it and what you would do that would be great.
Thank you in advance.

Well, I would still take him to a vet. A lot of animals can hide their pain rather well.

It could be an abscess. I would take him to the vet.
My Lola had an abscess on her belly and it had to be drained and then on antibiotics but she is perfectly fine now
