Exclamation Giant Lump!

my cambodian female has a giant lump between her gills and under her mouth. just one giant lump. what should i do??? she is in a sorority right now. is it a death sentence or can it be fixed? i have some melafix which says it can help but i am a little skeptical about it. please help!!!

A pic would really help. Secondly, is she breathing okay? Get her out of the sorority for now and into a warm QT container but don't use the melafix. Use 1 tsp of aquarium salt per gallon if you have it.

Can you describe the lump a little better? And how long has she had it?

Possibly a benign tumor then. If it doesn't change after some aquarium salt treatment, and she's not bothered by it, then she can probably go back into the sorority if you want. I hope she's doing okay.
