Hard swelling in front of teats

Just been spraying fly spray on my cob and noticed hard swellings in front of her teats (lymph nodes maybe?). They weren't there the day before yesterday and it doesn't look like there's any broken skin there. One seems to be a lot bigger than the other and is probably about an inch swollen whereas the other is not visible but can be felt. They don't seem to be bothering her while she's standing or while I touch them. Has anybody else had this or have any idea what it could be? I thought maybe an allergic reaction to a fly but this is the only time I've ever seen one on her. Sorry about the unclear pictures.

Is that her umbilicus? My (male) horse developed a lipoma cluster there in his late teens that looked similar from the outside, but of course, lots of things can be possible causes. His lipomas were quite firm to the touch, because in clusters. I didn't know what it was until he rolled and it came off one day. I only found it because the donkeys were licking it and he had a small bleeding wound and I put two and two together. Classical clusters of fat globules; the vet removed a couple of stragglers from the wound edge, and he's healed up good as gold.

But, like I said , could be anything, and unlikely to be the same thing my horse had... if it's an insect / spider bite or allergic thing, it will get smaller eventually; if it doesn't, you could get it evaluated.
