Just found a large lump on my GSD's back

I just found a large lump on my GSD's back behind her should blades she doesn't mind if I touch it, almost fills like liquid inside but I don't want to pres s too hard and hurt her, I have no idea what this could be, I'm nervous. It wasn't there yesterday. She never leaves my side unless I'm at work. Anyone have any thoughts on this? She's fine otherwise eating, playing, drinking. Please Help!

No vaccines recently. Could this be a spider bite or big bite? She is on frontline. I don't think it is but have read some people saying their dogs were bitten by spiders. I'm so worried.

glad you got an appointment!

Dogs get boils and sebaceous cysts. Some of them will fill with goo. And popping them, ew! But, best to check it out with the vet first, especially since it wasn't there yesterday. It could be many things.
