Wart-like lump?

I've just noticed this lump on my horses neck, it definitely wasn't there a couple of days ago, is this something I should be worries about?

Is it a scab? Or is it swollen?

It's definitely raised, looks a lot like a human wart, however it's soft and squishy to the touch

Horses can get all kinds of skin conditions (warts/tumors/etc) just like people, and a lot of them look very similar. What we do is just leave them alone (don't try to pick/remove them), keep an eye out for any major changes (size/color/bleeding/etc), and have the vet look at them next time he's out. If there is a big change, we'll have the vet out before (usually to remove it) and send to the lab for pathology to identify it. Of course, if you're worried, talk to your vet.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
