Cockatiel has large blood blister on wing

Cockatiel with blister
We adopted this cockatiel about 4 years ago, and at that time they thought he was about 12 years old. A few years ago he developed this little bump/blister on his wing. I think it may have been the result of a mild wing injury. At the time, it was about 80% smaller than it is now in the picture.
I just noticed today how large it has gotten. It is about 1/2 inch wide. I don't know how long it has been this large, but it seems to be bothering him more as it is more sensitive to him. I don't know what it is, or what to do about it. We have 3 other cockatiels as well and they all are together. He does not fly, he just kind of flutters to the ground.
I am on a limited income and cannot afford to take him to a vet, as I would expect the bill to be in excess of $100. Do you know what this is and have any ideas of what I can do for him?
