Curl gills or ? Sounds pretty bad. Share a picture or video. I believe the fellow bros here would like to help you out.

Did you check your water perimeters? Did you do anything unusual from your daily routine? Did you add fishes recently?
How's the scales of the aro? Does it look unusual too?

Bro, water issue.

If the lumps had harden, u might need to do surgery to remove them.

Otherwise, maintain good water parameters.
