A few weeks ago we found a stray hamster stuck in our backyard fence. Nobody claimed him, so we kept him. According to Google, it’s a male.
Tonight I noticed his back end seems swollen. I’d assume these are his testicles, but I don’t know my hamster anatomy, so I could be mistaken. He’s still eating/drinking, using his wheel.
I know zero about hamsters. Is this a concern?
Thanks!

I would say it's a male! I mean, there is a possibility that it's got a tumor back there (hamsters are notoriously prone to cancer), but in my experience that's not a common location for tumors. So my best guess, you've just got a well-endowed boy :). You can always have a vet check him out to be sure though!
