My betta has a bump

My fish has a lump. He's recently been sucked to the side of the filter, Not sure if that's why but what can I do for him? Is it a "boo boo" or a tumor? Or a parasite?

By the way, He's had it for 2 days.
I've been doing 30% waterchanges every day and did a full water change today.

Keeping his water clean is a good move.

It'll help if you fill out the questionnaire sticky at the top of the diseases forum, then we'll better know how to help you.

Are there any other problems with him like appetite loss, etc? Is he swimming okay?
