Default Bearded Dragon - hard lump in right hand side of beard?

My families 3 year old bearded dragon has developed a hard lump in the right hand side of his beard, I don't know how long it has been there as he lives at my parents so I don't see him often and they are on holiday atm.

He is still eating fine, but is very lethargic (but he has been like that most of his life he's happy to to just sit there all day long and move from the heat when he needs to)

Anyone have any ideas of what this might be?

It could be an abscess. If so a vet can open it an clean it en give you some antibiotics.
I don't think its a tumour becouse of his young age and repile almost never get tumours.

Thanks for your reply, I've booked him in tomorrow for the vets so fingers crossed its nothing serious.

And sorry I realised I didn't write it well in first post i was implying I couldn't use lethargy as a symptom with the lump as he's been a lazy beardy all his life!
