    I noticed this knot a week or so ago . I decided to try to lance it . Well I did and it left this nasty whole . Any idea what caused it ? She seems to not be in any pain and is acting very normal .

    May be a kind of fly. Some flies live in rabbits and other animals until they hatch. It looks a little big for mites, so probably a fly.
