Prairie Dog Question

One of my PDs has a "knot, nodule", whatever, on his neck... underneath... its about a 1/4 inch round... fairly solid... it moves when you rub it and it doesnt seem to bother him. Being a med student, & by location, my first though was enlarged thymus, but somehow I just dont believe its something that occurs in PDs... and that shouldnt move. Ive got an appointment with a specialist this week but Ive been trying to research the net with no luck. Just thought maybe some other PD owner or anyone could throw out suggestions on what it might be to keep me from worrying and hopefully not make me worry more. Its been there about 6 months. My regular vet saw him a few months ago and wasnt concerned about it but Im still concerned it might be something bad that may need treatment. Nothing else has changed with him. He is very active and healthy.

Please send your advise my way!!
