Lump under tail

I have been keeping an eye on my guy Diablo the past couple days because I haven’t noticed any poops in his cage. On closer inspection it seems he has a big lump under his tail (near vent) on his left side. I have read things about impacting or possible sperm plug impaction but I don’t know if that’s what it is. If it is, will it work itself out or if I need to find a vet for him? It’s tough where I live in Hawaii to find a reptile vet so im really hoping he will be okay.

About his set up:
He has an exoterra screen cage with the dual light kit. Ambient temp here in Hawaii is around 85-87f lately, so I've left the heat light off and just leave the UV lamp bc it’s so hot. We mist him by hand at least 5x a day with filtered spring water.

His diet is mostly crickets from petco and I gutload with cricket crack and a revolving wet component like collard /mustard greens, hibiscus flowers, bellpeppers, mango, carrot occasionally...
He’s been eating every day, about 4-5 small crickets but no poop... at least not that I can find.

He usually does eat more (around 10, more if they are true pinheads) but they’ve grown quite a bit since I bought them and they fill him up faster.
