Cow has a knot on side of neck been there for about a month, started out the size of a softball and now has reduce to baseball size but has grown out to be more pointed. I have been thinking of getting her in the shute and seeing if it is tissue or puss. Question: if puss, should I lance it for drainage?
She seems fine otherwise!!

Probably a reaction at an injection site. It'll go away eventually.

The rule of thumb is, you can lance the lump if it's soft, don't touch it if it's hard.
