Marble sized lump on side (near girth area)

Found a very hard, marble sized lump on the side of my horse Wednesday July 13th. Been watching it closely however still no change. Not tender. Not sore. Hard like marble and same size. Hair is not changing on the site and can't see a bug bite or stinger hit. Treated it thus far as a bug bite but no change. Then tried DMSO, no change. Thoughts? I think I added a pic but can't be sure.

Sarcoid?

If it is the only difference from the pics I saw online was that the one on Fatz hasnt erupted or doesnt show any sign of hair loss, scabs, hard growth, puss, etc. It looks identical to a bug bite (nothing oozing tho). Weirdest thing. Popped up so recently and it being hard is what has me worried. Not like a fatty cyst.

It could just be a bug bite. Aidan had one too during his vet check. Vet said it wasn't hurting him, didnt hinder him, it was probably a mild allergic reaction to a bug bite/sting.

I'm not really sure. I have a friend that just had a sarcoid treated in that general area that looked very much like that one. My horse has a lump about that size that just appeared on his leg. I had the vet out for something else and she glanced at it and said it was a kick or a bug bite but nothing to be concerned about. It's been there for a month and I don't know that's it's gotten any smaller yet....

Am hoping for the bug bite theory. Been there since the 13th tho. Was thinkin it would have gone down by now. :( That's kinda why I waited. She's coming out end of the week if it doesnt decrease jus to be sure. Thanks all for your comments. Fingers crossed its jus a reaction to a bite.

Just thought I'd chime in, kind of a stupid point but my dog has the same thing haha, same area description, everything. :P

It probably won't relate to your horse, but my vet said its nothing but maybe a bug bite, I hope the same is for you !
