Can anyone tell me what this lump is on my goldfish? It appeared overnight.

He is in a 55gal with 2 other goldfish, a pleco, and few ottos. Ph, Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate are normal. weekly wc. I use prime, stability, apI stress coat.

I'm still researching, but could use any help in identifying this. The white around it makes me think its some sort of fungus..idk.

It looks like its wen is damaged, it's not a very severe wound though and I think it will heal in time. I hope this helped!

it could be a tumor, My fancy goldfish had one. I just let it be and it went away.

Thank you all. I am just monitoring him and the lump for any changes. His behavior is normal and has a healthy appetite. No clamped fins or any sign of illness. Just a growth on his wen.

Forgot to mention I am treating with Pimafix and its almost gone, with the exception of the white streaks.
