Tumor?

Sorry, I don't have any pictures, but I will describe it the best I can. It started a few months go when I was doing a 100% water change to get rid of some dang algae. It completely covered the one side of my tank. I noticed a very small lump on my girl. Nothing else was wrong with her. Since then that lump is slowly growing. It is the size of a pencil's eraser, but only raised a few millimeters. Now she has popeye. I was reading and somewhere said that was the next step. She's still as happy as can be though. Swims like crazy, and jumps for her food.

Okay, so I have a ten gallon tank divided into three. It is around 78-79 degrees F. I haven't done any ammonia and such tests recently. Last one I did, everything was okay. I have since done two 100% water changes except for the filter. Any help?

No raised scales except for on the bump the scales are raised just a bit. She is eating normal, swimming normal, acting perfectly normal. Nothing else has changed except for that bump.
