Don't just cut it. Without the proper supplies/knowledge, she could be in loads of pain, risk infection, bleed an inordinate amount, or suffer any other of many consequences.

You really want the vet to look at it, to make sure it isn't cancerous or symptomatic of something else. (Think about it. If the growth was on _you_, what would you do?)
