    my spelling may be incorrect but I would say just an absess. If it pops it will ooze stuff for a few days and heal. As long as it doesn't get infected.

    Growth

    Last year, I shot a doe that had a lump like that on her jaw. I shot a nice buck about 30 minutes after her, so I planned on mounting both of them together. While caping the doe, I found the lump. The whole thing was just a big mound of a grissle like mass. I figured it was from an old puncture from a cactus thorn or something like that, and then it took on the oyster effect. The body started a growth around the foreign object to mask the pain. I cut the growth all apart and didn't find anything in it.

    Didn't seem to bother the meat. We ate it and no one got sick or died.

    Deer lump

    That is really strange. I have never seen anything like that. Kinda looks like a tumor. I would probably shoot that deer and get it checked out.

    I would say it's a old wound also probally when she was running threw the trees and cought a branch or some thing else. But then again its kinda far back for that. Not sure just guessing.

    That may be a Cutaneous Fibromas, caused by a viral infection in the skin.

    The virus can be transmitted by insect bite or when uninfected animals contact contact an infected animal's skin and an open sore, etc. The virus is not transmittable to humans though.

    Here is a pic of a deer with a similar lump. These fibromas can be isolated or can cover large portions of the deer's body . . .

    I'd go with a fatty tumor, may potentially be a warble, though it would be one damn big warble if it is a warble. It may also be a Fibroma, either way it probably wouldn't harm the meat, since when you see a mass/tumor like that, it indicates it has been isolated to the skin and fat tissue. If you were to shoot that deer and find that the tumor/mass was involving the muscles, bones, cartilige, then it would seem to be more cancerous than infection related. As far as an abcess goes, that would be one huge abcess if it were an abcess, but I doubt it is an abcess.

    I have a video clip of a 7 point that had them all over him.. The local deer processor said they're warts and are under the skin only and not in the meat. Also the meat would be totally edible and cause no ill effects. Think i'd have to pass on eating it.

    Ive seen much larger abcess on horses, that was the only reason I guessed that. sometimes only occassionally we will cut them open at necropsy.

    Now that just sounds funny to me for some reason. I can't put my finger on it but...
