Large Lump on Anoles Head

My male anole has developed a large soft lump behind his right tympanum. Can anyone tell me what this is and how it may be treated? He eats and moves well, sheds his skin regularly, and changes color frequently. He shares a 15 gallon terrarium with a healthy female. I have UVB and basking light on a timer and mist a couple times a day. The bottom of the tank is soil and it has plants growing in it as well as a section of tree limb for climbing. There is a flat rock at the bottom for basking. They eat calcium dusted crickets and the lights rest on a screen cover over the aquarium. I am willing to try anything that gives him a decent chance of survival, but I am in a better position to give him an inexpensive funeral than I am to pay for expensive veterinary care.
