What is this??

Hey everyone. So I started a thread a while ago about how my betta had a scar on his left side, at the base of his fin. I didn't worry to much about it since I had gotten him like that and it hadn't changed, but now it has...

Is there anything I can do for him? Nothing has changed in his environment since the last thread...

That's definitely a tumor =( Not much you can do for it I'm afraid, just keep him comfortable. It shouldn't affect his lifespan in any way as long as it's not blocking any organs. Sometimes they burst, so keep an eye out for that. Just keep his water super clean, and make sure there's nothing sharp in his tank that he could get poked on.
