I had a Jack Dempsey that lived for many years with a similar lump. It never posed a problem.

Keeping fish is only as hard as you choose to make it.

I reckon these lumps are like a callus. They get them from constantly brushing up against the edge of the tank or from cleaning rocks. Im not 100% sure that is the cause tho. However whatever the cause is, as oscarfishlover says, it is very common and nothing to worry about

I can't get no sleep
