Help. Kingston has a bump on his side

So Kingston has a bump on his side where the scales are starting to stick out :( The area where the bump is used to be a little dark spot before the bump appeared. I didn't think it was anything serious because he's always had spots. Then the bump became visible & now his scales are sticking out there. What could be causing this?

Sorry I lack a picture, but I learned the hard way that my Spartan's "birthmark" dark blue spot on his one side was actually the starting of a tumor... As his age progressed it bubbled a little, the scales raised, and in the end it was a lump. It can be harmful, it can slow down... Or it may begin to harm organs, and speed up. All you can do is watch him.

Thank you.. That's what I was afraid of :( I did a bunch of research and that's what it seems to be. He is still extremely active, & his personality hasn't changed either. I just hope it does slow down if there is nothing else I can do about it.
