Sorry to hear about the lump. How long have you noticed this lump developing and how old is this doe? The first thing that came to mind was an iodine goiter but you said that this is on the side so that probably rules that out. Any chance the doe got stung by a wasp or bee? Ran into something that would cause a contusion (bruise)?
From my experiences with goats with CL, I've noticed a couple of things (and this of course is not saying that it is CL either) - the lump will begin to appear and suddenly grow really large in a short period of time. Then the hair in the center of the lump begins to fall out (or can be easily pulled out). Seems like this all transpires within a few short weeks.
At least this is what I've seen with a friends goat that has CL and I doctor for them every few months. I sure hope that it is not CL but I do hear that there is a company working on a vaccine. I'll try to get the information if I can find it and post it for everyone who may be interested.
The good thing is that not all lumps are CL. So there is always a chance that it is something else and not CL.
