Scab or absess

My tortoise has what looks like a scab near its mouth. It is a little raised and only small. It was rubbing that area and had a little mark and now this. I think it is a scab but the vet thinks it's an abcess and needs a little operation. She admits she doesnt know anything about tortoises and has never operated on one but she thinks it is an abcess! Does anyone else have any idea what it is.
