Betta Swelling

I have a little betta girl who has a lump on her right side. She's swimming fine and eating like a little piggy and doesn't seem to have any discomfort, but there's this bulge. It's under her scales and there's no porcupining. She's had it for a few weeks and it isn't getting any bigger or smaller. Her water's perfectly clean and always has been. Please help.

Could be a tumor. But we'll never know unless you send it in for tests. Its probably not dropsy and she doesn't sound bloated. A picture would help. But lumps and bumps are nearly impossible to diagnose in fish. Sorry but you might just have to do nothing but keep her water clean and feed her treats once in a while :D

What size is your tank? Do you have actual water parameters?

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
