It sounds like a mite infestation. The scabs appear on the neck and shoulders to start.

You'll need to treat all your rats with Revolution if so.

So I treated them all with revolution...but the little lump is still there. If I pinch it between my fingers it feels like the size of a pea and quite firm...not really any bigger though. Im really not sure how long it's been there or what it could be 🤔 It doesn't look like anything that could be typically tumour-like or cancerous right?

Small cysts can stay the same for months, and sometines longer before changing and opening up. Abscesses are usually faster, they will grow then develop a darker spot/thinner skin/scab where the abscess will open and drain.
