It could be a tooth issue (infection from abscess.damaged tooth). Have you checked her teeth?
It could also be a swollen/ infected gland. Yes, it could be a tumour, but hopefully not. Could you give me a little more information? What type of hamster you're got? What the lump feels like? Is it hard, soft? How long has it been there and how quickly did it form? Is this a solitary hamster or does it have buddies that may have done her an injury (leading to an infection).

it is probably an absess and the teeth need to be checked. My rabbit had one and it was her teeth .  The vets  thought tumor  but it was a absess have them do a biopsy it would have been found sooner.
