Horse developing thick "lumps" on head and tail

My 12 yr old Thoroughbred mare has thick "lumps" on her head where she used to wear a Miracle Collar. I had already removed the collar weeks before I discovered the lumps were developing. A few Weeks later, I noticed that the base off her tail was thickening. The skin is still smooth on her head, but her tail is getting wrinkly. Her head is looking deformed. I know everyone thinks I should just call the vet, but I have NO money in which to do so. I have recently become disabled and the economy has nearly cut my husbands pay in half. I can't even sell my horse as she looks now, if I even wanted to sell her. She is not in any discomfort , but if the lumps worsen she won't be able to wear her halter or bridle. Please help!

After I posted, I realized a picture speaks a thousand words. I'll have to try to take some tomorrow and post them. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
