Default Your thoughts on this growth

Been watching this for a few months. It started as a lump under the skin and has developed into this in the past week.
Thoughts please as to what it looks like.

Joanne, where is it located? Does it look like a blister/cyst w/liquid inside?

It's on her side tummy by back leg. It was growing out like a cone but after the bath today, I was able to pick off the top, which was a hard white substance. Nothing squeezes out. It's been hard like a rock since the beginning.

It looks a lot like a tick bite, but this time of year?

Since she has been watching it for a few months it would be possible to be a tick bite, Walter. Let's remember too that logs for the FP & Christmas trees can bring them in & wake them up, but it may be too early for that. My DD got bit by one from logs for the FP.

Joanne, they can feed & drop off---so don't worry about legs.

I don't know anything about skin tags---never even seen one, but a tick bite may be more treatable than some other possibilities.

Omgosh...I don't do well with bugs...does the hard lump mean there could be a tick underneath her skin? I've only seen them half embedded, not burrowed where I can't see anything. Nothing squeezes out, not even pus. I don't know what to think and I can't get her to the vet until Tuesday.
