One of my mares had something very similar, vet biopsied it on the safe side but it turned out to be some kind of cyst and was harmless so w left it alone, flies used to eat it a bit though!

I know treatment differs but what treatment did you have to do with your horses ? Or was it a leave and wait job ?

Mine had one on her eyelid. It was growing inside the eyelid and compromising her sight. So she went off to Liphook to have it removed, and then reconstructive surgery of the eyelid itself.

But that was only because of where it was - she had others under her belly which we just left alone as they didn't cause her any problems

Charlie had a sarcoid in the same place when I first got him. The vet put a rubber band round it (the type you put on lambs tails) and after a couple of weeks it had shriveled up and fell off. It left him with the tiniest of scars and has never caused any problems since.
