Is this pox or a tumor or . . . ?

Hi, chickenfolk, one of my leggerns has a bump on the corner of her lower beak (it's the roundish bump in the corner at the base). My other two leggerns don't have this, and it's only on one side. She's otherwise outwardly healthy, eating and drinking and acting like a normal chicken. Is this the dread pox? A tumor? What should I do? Thanks!

Don't worry I had a chicken with the same bump. I don't remember what it was called though. But she lived a long life.

Thanks, fish220! That puts me at ease! I figured if something was terribly wrong, she wouldn't eat or drink or run with the flock. I'm guessing her eggs would be safe to eat, then? Thanks, again!
