Unhappy syno RED LUMP on face: ADVICE?

Hi--
I have 2 Synos (leopards, about 3 in.) that have survived for 3 years or so with no problems, though 6 cichlids in the tank died during that time. Today I noticed that the larger one (male?) has a swollen red lump (about 4-5 mm) under and behind 1 eye. He was also behaving oddly: usually the first and most aggressive when feeding, he was slow to emerge from his hole.
Any ideas? From reading forums, it seems like it could be a bacterial infection or a microorganism of some sort (e.g., nematode), or a tumor.
Any ideas? Should I treat with an anti-bacterial? Isolate? Help would be much appreciated.
