Unable to fly - tumor

I am holding a lutino african love bird pair. In recent days i noticed it was not able to fly and it comes up and down by holding the mesh with its beak. I checked its feathers and there was a small tumour under the wings. Please suggest any advice .

Tumor under wing

Dr B can not help you with this, because your bird needs to be seen in person by an avian vet. Until a vet knows what kind of tumor and what is causing it, they can not give advice or treatment.
