While fingering my girlfriend the other day, I noticed a long, hard, fleshy lump within the vagina. Before you jump to "it's the cervix", just know that it was rather narrow, extended maybe halfway down the vaginal cavity, was toward the side, and could be pushed back and forth. In short, it felt like a fleshy, hanging jalapeno (apologies for that mental picture).

What could it be?

That does sound like the cervix to me. Has your girlfriend had a pelvic exam before?

No, she hasn't, and won't for some time.

What could a cervix that narrow and extended mean, though?

Throughout the menstrual cycle, the cervix does change size and position. It can move from being further up in the vagina, to being closer to the opening just depending on where in their cycle someone is. Furthermore, not everyone's body is going to be the same.

What you're describing is a little unusual though it may just be how your girlfriend's body is. If it continues to feel the same in future, I'd suggest that your girlfriend see a healthcare provider just to make sure that everything is healthy and as it should be.
