That is a pretty big bump. Unfortunately I do not know. Watch for any holes and any possible parasite coming out.

Watch his eyes, gills and vent also to see if there is any nearly invisible worm like creatures wiggling around.

I know there are tumors which fish can get some are not terminal, some just stay there.

How quickly since you have noticed it has it grown?

Is he constipated to the best of your knowledge? Might be worth fasting him for 3-4 days.

You might also dose the tank with Epsom salt. 1 TEAspoon per 5 gallons of water to start then work your way up to 1 TEAspoon per gallon.

Ya I would definitely treat for internal parasites in case it isn't a benign tumor and it's a parasitic tumor.

That is good to hear, though I would watch his poop and still keep an eye open for any wormy things in any openings of his body.
