Unfortunately,  fish do get cancer too.  A large growth as you describe could be cancerous.  It could be surgically removed which could improve his ability to eat mechanically.  

But as I have mentioned previously I am not a fish expert.  Please post  your question to exotics, and I would love any other comments for all you helpers out there!
