My 4 month old heifer (Charolais) has developed a lump under her jaw. This lump has grown larger almost daily. It sits right between the V in her lower jaw and runs from her throat to the tip (kind of oblong). It's big enough that it droops about 2 inches. It feels somewhat medium hard. What could this be. It seems to be drawing her down, but she does eat and drink.

Thanks, tcbrewer

Thank you all for the help. It puts my mind at ease. Would it be better to use a pour on or injectable? Prior to noticing the lump I had used the pour on wormer on her. After worming how long should it take for the lump to go down? When it goes down, is that a sign that she is worm free? Do all cows develope "bottle jaw" when they have worms?

thanks
