Goldfish have lumps all over body

Hello everyone I recently rescued 4 goldfish of which 2 appear to have lumps on their body one with them all over its body and the other with only on the right side.
I have tried dose the water with anti-parasite slime and velvet.
There has been no change the other two appear to have missing scales I presume the lumps are due to them being kept in extremely poor water quality.
I know itís not life threatening but it look real bad and I just want to get rid of it.

Let me know anything that will help eliminate these lumps.

If wanted to know they are doing great they are swimming properly donít seem to have any other problem.
Water quality is good now no ammonia or any irregular numbers for nitrate or nitrite.

They look like tumours. Quite common in goldfish and usually harmless.

Unless you are up for removal by a vet, im not sure there is an effective treatment.

Thank you for your response

Hello,
Thank you for your response I pretty much figure it would have to be through surgical means. I think I’ll just leave them be as they are.

Thank you again.

Kind regards

Maybe Carp Pox.

Maybe heat can help.
