Growing lump between fins on belly

For the past 2 weeks I've notice a lump on my betta Stanley's belly right in between the two long fins that hang. I just noticed tonight that it's gotten big enough in the past few days, while I was out of town, that it has broken through his scales or stretched out between them. It looks like it's where his anus is but I can't tell. He keeps flaring at me so I think he doesn't feel well. I just got a dog and slacked on changing his water for almost a month but his tank is fully cycled with a heater and filter and I used Prime to neutralize any ammonia nitrites or nitrates. If anyone knows about lumps or tumor like this please help. I don't want my lil boy to die if there's something I can do to help him!

Are you sure it's just not his stomach swelling from food?

Also, is it white or red or anything? Some pictures would help us out here :)
