After seeing the photos and reading the info posted, I can say assuredly that whatever that is, it is not lymphocystis. The first indication is the uniform shape of it. Lympho resembles cottage cheese, and is "lumpy" in shape, tending to be more of an off white to yellowish color.
That appears to be a cyst or tumor of some sort, but without being able to see it in person, there is no way to say for sure. The only thing you can do at this point is to watch it, record any changes in a notebook, with time/date for everything recorded. "Track it" at this point, see if it grows, how much over how long of a period of time, etc.... and keep water very clean, foods very nutritious, and stress levels to a minimum. Watch other fish for signs of the same thing developing at this point, cuz there's no way to know for certain if it is contageous or not right now.
