My mothers male budgie has a red lump on his beak just below

Customer Question

My mothers male budgie has a red lump on his beak just below his nostrils. It looks like a boil but does not seem to worry him. He is eating and singing as usual. Should I seek help or wait and see.

Susan, can you upload a close-up photo(s) of this lump to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ I can be more accurate if I can see what you're seeing.
