Tumour, cyst, parasite, injury.
Big lump? Small lump? What colour? Did it appear suddenly or grown larger over time?
Got a pic?

Can't really help more without a pic, and then can't guarantee anything :roll:
If it is not affecting the fish then just keep an eye on it and make sure the water quality is kept up.
