    Leave him alone, he is already stressed. Are you sure its a bump and not a bubble?? Before a Crab molts they get a bubble-like thing. Is he missing any limbs? Crabs also loose limbs then regenerate them. This could be whats going on. So let him be just make sure he has hos food and water and hope for the best. :D Crabs are kind of like cats, they have 9 lives.
