Unhappy HELP betta has lump on spine?

My betta has been growing this tumor thing on his back for a few weeks and it is just getting bigger. I do a 25% water change in his 10 gallon tank every week, all the other fish (I have 4 neon tetras) seem to be fine. Itís hard to keep him from overeating, and make sure the others have food too so I wonder if that could be part of it. Heís been hiding in the log more as well as laying on the bottom more, but just a bit. Heís still eating and swimming around mostly normal! Please help; is this an abscess I can treat with antibiotics? Nothing Iíve seen online looked like this so I have no clue what it could be!!

check your computer settings or if there was an extra letter or space when you clicked it because it worked for me just now from the link.
