I just found a lump about 9/16" big on one of my Guinea Pigs.
(It feels like a grape) here is a Pic of the lump.
Has any one seen anything like this?
If I take her to the vet, what would they do for her?

Lumps can be abscesses, cysts, tumors, etc. A vet can tell you for sure. Usually they will use a needle to draw some of the tissue out of the lump to see what it is.

Abscesses require either lancing and draining or complete removal. Cysts and tumors usually have to be removed in their entirety as well.
