My Oscar has a growth on the side of its head?

Recommended Posts

IMG_4222.jpeg.3006bf9713d3f3ed57c29bd481f51cd2.jpegI have an Oscar that is about 5 years old and has recently developed a growth on the side of its head. It’s almost the opposite of hole in the head disease. 
The tank has been stable for years and i probably don’t do maintenance quite as much as I should… does anyone know what it is and what I can do about it?

You can get these types of lump with hold in the head am assuming your already treating with metronidazole in food for the hold in the head if not I would start treating with metroplex in food feeding a small amount twice a day for Upton 3 weeks hole in the head can be associated with  nutritional deficiencies poor water quality some state a link with active carbon so it your using active carbon I would stop  using it what are your feeding and what are your water parameters @arthurf
