What's this on my rat's tail?

Picture is a bit blurry.
It's a growth but doesn't match any pics on Google of tumours.
I am going to book a vets app but wondered if anyone could help in the meantime.
Rat is 23 months old and female. Her cagemate was euthanised this week because of a tumour so I'm convinced this is going to end badly too 😢

I'm sorry to read about your other wee rat. I didn't want to read and run. Hopefully someone will be along who knows more than me. Fingers crossed it's going to be ok for you.

Thanks Smallcar
She's so sad on her own. I don't want her to be in physical pain too ☹️

Hi OP, did you take her to the vet? To me it just looks like a skin tag. I'd be more concerned with any swellings in her abdomen or if she looks like she's suddenly gained weight.
