One of our girls has developed a large, hard lump on one side of her neck, right around the wattle. It must have developed quite quickly as I'm sure I'd have noticed it before now... It doesn't bother her if I touch it and she otherwise seems well (very occasionally she coughs, but that's about it.) But seems strange. Any ideas? (Hope the pics aren't too big - I'm on my phone!)

Is it in or on the top of the wattle? I’ve heard goats can develop abscesses in wattles or is it on her neck?
could she have gotten a thorn or sticker stuck there?
Have you had her tested for CL.

Looks to have two lumps? One just at the wattle base and another on the neck?

Kinda sounds to be a cancer of sorts. But that's just a guess. I'd definitely get a vet check her out if you can.
