Is it sticking out the back, or downward? It could be an early bumble.
Won't hurt to put triple antibiotic ointment (no painkiller) on it three times a day - it should begin to get smaller after several days.
You could also try letting her swim in lukewarm water for half an hour or so, then drop a couple of drops of clear - clear - clear not brown - iodine on it, then wait 5 or 6 days and see if a black scab forms.
If so, let her swim again in lukewarm water for half an hour or so, and see if you can very gently peel the scab off.
