Bump on throatlach area..?

As I came home from nationals, and then a local fair I noticed that a bump my doe had on her throatlach area was increasing in size. She now has a hard swelling, a little smaller then the size of a golfball. I at first thought it could be a wattle cyst as its nearby, but its grown a bit more then what I like to call "acceptable." Its only on one side, so I was ruling out any bottle jaw, ect. and the great pictures in Goat Medicine for subcutaneous swellings involving the head suggest it to be in the Thymus area (if I'm remembering right). She was reciently wormed.

I'm deathly afraid that its CL. I've NEVER had it in my herd, which would be over 4 years in this location. It dosn't show signs of rupturing or anything, and dosn't restrict eating ect. Any thoughts? This is my fav. milker, and my first doe the Token Togg... so knowing my luck its going to be another hard lesson in keep and cull.

I'm having the vet come out for booster shots for our horses for EEE and VEE (due to mosquito problems in our area) so I'll have him take a look at the lump and hopefully remove it or at least figure out what it is.. (please no CL.. augh...)

Thanks again!
