It may be Bot fly larva, if you have them in your area. My gelding (before he got sold) had a large lump in his nose, that sounds like this, and it was a bot fly, nothing to worry about it if is.

She has no nasal or eye drainage, I thought strangles caused lumps on the actual throat? She hasn't had any shots yet...how do you cure strangles just in case that is what she has? And what are other strangles symptoms? It did come on pretty suddenly, she noticed it about 5 days ago...

There is no eye or nasal drainage? How long has it been there? Has it grown in the last couple days? It's hard to tell without pictures... it could also be an onset of strangles.

Those were my thoughts. Either an absessed tooth or strangles.

You can Google about strangles or here is some info:
Strangles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As for what to do with the horse, they could wait to see if it gets worse or call a vet to check it out. It could also be where something poked the horse or got stuck in the horse, like a sliver, and it's getting infected. Or he horse has a cold and a gland has swollen up. Again, either wait and see or call the vet.

If the eyes or nose start draining, even if you notice just the slightest bit, call your vet immediately. Strangles is HIGHLY contagious.

Does it feel like it's filled with pus? Or does it have a hard core or scab?

it's feels like it's a rock that formed under her skin... but it's the tinniest bit squishy. She hasn't been around any horses for months, the tack is always cleaned and never shared, and she stays on my friends property. So I doubt it's strangles, she doesn't seem to be showing any symptoms of strangles anyway. We do have fly's around here, so it may be from that
