White hole in the side of my Molly

One of my Dalmatian mollies seems to have a large white hole in its side. It’s the only fish in the tank with this symptom. The tank has 10 mollies, 10 corydoras, and 5 bristle nose pleco. It is a 70 gallons tank. This fish is a baby that was born and raised in my tank so likely not a disease from a pet store. No recent additions to the tank. 588F3674-62BD-4273-BAAC-08BDB696E7CE.jpeg.95e4073983cc291b616dda94f99b83ea.jpeg46F361D7-9334-4B61-B373-11111FC1A26D.jpeg.6ee1e2de8316b8e4fff49e4f8a34dcea.jpegWondering what it could possibly be.

It's difficult to tell from your your picture it could be a prolapse from the vent  correct me if am wrong if it is Epsom salt baths 1 table spoon for 1 gallon for no more than 15 minutes for 5 days as Epsom salt acts as a muscle relaxant to help your fish reabsorb the prolapse @SavannaNeniska

@Colu

I’ve never heard of that before but when I googled it, it doesn’t seem like it. This hole/raised lump is coming from higher up on her stomach on the side of her body. If I try to epsom salt salt bath, will it do damage to her if it isn’t a prolapse? 
thanks!
