The world's greatest criminal rat

Hazel, one of the pet rats in my classroom, has a huge tumor or growth of some sort under her throat. One of the kids noticed it at snack--"Look, the rat has an eggsack!" he said, and at first I thought maybe it was a male rat and he was noticing the testicles. It feels weird to be so concerned for the life of our classroom rats, at the same time that I'm trying to stamp out their cousins from my apartment.
