User avatar Hi Nashcash,

If the lump is getting bigger or becoming more painful for her she should be seen in the urgent care. If it isn't bothering her and isn't getting bigger it is probably fine to wait. I sounds like it may be a bug bite. If this is the case it should heal without difficulty.

Best wishes.
