Sun Conure with a lump

My 5 year old Sun Conure has been picking at his upper chest feathers for a while now. We have recently relocated and we thought it might be from stress, but now we see a lump where he is picking. It is large and whitish in color. Is this normal or is it something to be concerned about?

Yes, you need to be concerned. You need to take your bird to an avian vet to determine what is causing this lump. He is likely picking at it because it hurts.
