No, Melafix will absolutely not work, not even as "antibiotic" for bacterial infections. It can speed up recovery process of the fish's wounds but that's it. It will not keep infections at bay like salt does. Forget the Melafix idea. It will only suffocate your fish and pointless since any cysts or tumor will unlikely to be inhibited by that stuff. Yes, do post pics when you have them. Hard to diagnose cysts without pics.

Maybe she has a cell phone that takes pics? Or have her google whatever looks closest and send it to you.
