Can't really make out the photo.

Is there any colour to the lump or is it a white spot?

I'd say QT if you can. Could be either bacterial infection (see neon picture under this in link below) or ntd (never had this but you can read up on late stage signs).

Yes, I think the meds will be needed unfortunately. If bacterial you may get it to clear up.
