Is this a sarcoid?

Hunter has had this for a little while, my trainer says its a sarcoid. Usually it has a scab over it but tonight it was like this. I think it might be bothered by his fly mask. Any thoughts?

I could be wrong but I thought sarcoids didn't bubble up & bleed? That looks like an insect bite to me.

But he has had it for weeks and weeks and it feels/looks like a wart. Usually it has a scab on it.
The bubble is actually a hard bump

It does look like a sarcoid. There are a few different kinds of sarcoids that look a bit different in their appearances. You should get your vet to check it out and suggest what should be done. Sometimes they are best left alone and sometimes it is a good idea to treat them. They can get bigger and interfere with tack.

Learned something new. Nope, definitely not a bug bite if it's been there for awhile.

Ya I have been reading about them there can be many different kinds/sizes/form I am going to take him to the vet hopefully this weekend but I just wanted to know if anyone else has had one like this.

Our mare Cinnamon had a very similar looking one on her side that was a basal cell tumor. As someone else mentioned, there are a lot of types of skin tumors that horses can get and the only way to know for sure is to biopsy it and have the pathology done. In Cinnamon's case, it stayed about the size of a pencil for 6+ months but then doubled in size in January so we had the vet out to remove it and get the pathology report (basal cell tumors are not malignant, but they can grow).
