  2. Hi all, my 2 year old oranda has had a lump on his back where his tail starts for about a year. It has remained very small up until about 2 weeks ago when it started growing rapidly. I have been treating with melafix & aquarium salt but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. It's now started to Darken in places, so much so that it's starting to look black. Its also starting to look sore. He is still very active as you can see, still eating well etc. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm worried that it's cancerous. I have attached a video Thanks! IMG_4673///
