Default Lump on belly

My five month old has a marble sized lump near her bottom nipple. It appeared overnight while she was at the kennel (she is the kennel mascot and spends all her time with the owner). It is firm but not rock hard. It doesn't appear to hurt her and she's not bothering it. I noticed it when I picked her up yesterday.

She's still young so it can't be related to heat nor is it hard like a cancer lump. I'll call the vet tomorrow but just wondering if anyone might know before I can get her in.

Thanks Lump on belly-imageuploadedbypg-free1388968173.830052.jpg

Is the lump on her nipple itself? Might just be a case of an "infected" hair follicle on her tummy (a pimple) that has gotten bigger over time.

It turned out to be a blood blister - a really large one! The vet thinks it got pinched or another dog nipped at her. It's healing well thank goodness. I swear this pup keeps the vet in business.
