Injured Goldfish help!

Hi everyone,
I'm not a fish expert and I need some help.
I've got a goldfish at home, and it seems to have injured its peduncle (I think that is the right term, it's just before the tail fins). Now, it's unable to swim properly and it's floating at the top of the fish tank sideways with the injured part exposed out of the water. I can tell it's injured because the part of its peduncle is bulging and irregular. The fish seems to be healthy though.

Can I get any advice on what to do?

Excuse me for my poor explaining.
