    Default Iguana with lumpy area on nose which looks like retained shed

    My grumpy boy has a raised area on his nose. He has been shedding his face and historically this one spot on his nose seems harder than the rest of his face to slough off. Just a few days ago it started to look more raised than usual. I pressed lightly pressed on it last night when he was calm and sleepy to see how it felt. It looked that caused a tiny bit of bleeding under the skin. It doesn't feel like a hard lump. Any ideas what it could be? I have been misting him more than usual to see if it would come off. I will take him to a vet but he's quite aggressive so it will be challenging. Also challenging to do anything with him at home. Just wondering if anyone has an idea what it might be? If it was just retained skin would it bleed a little like it did from me pressing on it? Just trying to be prepared for what I might be in for when I take him in. Thanks.
