With the size of the tumor and his age ... its very risky ... the vet doesn't want to do it but I can't just give up on him

Have you talked to other rat owners about him? They might be able to advise better than a vet.

Yes I have ... They basically said don't put him down until his quality of life declines but they can't see or feel the tumor so they really can't judge it
