Mysterious lump

Hello,
My beardie, Zeke, is 6 1/2 years old and has always been very healthy. I noticed a small lump on his jaw several weeks ago and decided to keep an eye on it. However, this week it’s grown from a small lump to what it is now. Over the course of 3-4 days. He lets me poke at it without flinching or irritation. It’s pretty solid and not able to move around. Could it possibly be a cyst or abscess?

Any advice would be appreciated. I plan on calling a vet tomorrow. His appetite, stool, and mood hasn’t changed.

Thanks!
