Loach illness?

I've got a problem with my loach and hopefully someone out there can give me a clue as to what it is. About a year ago I noticed a growth on her fin, it had the appearance of a burst blister (looked abit like current) dark red in colour. As she didn't seem to be in distress I though maybe she'd banged/caught the fin on something and suffered an injury. That growth is still there and recently she's developed another one on her side. She still seems okay, eating well and swimming around. She's in a tank of her own (she has been for many years) and I clean the tank regularly.

Does anyone have any clues.
