Bump in a sidewall - how much should I worry

I just noticed today that my passenger front tire has a slight but evident "bump" on a sidewall. I have no idea how long it's been there, but since the roads in the DC metro area are not that pretty after the winter, I guess it happened at some point after hitting one of many potholes .

The tire is a stock Bridgestone RE050A RFT 235/40/18 front for the e93 sport (pics below).

How concerned should I be? Is it "change right now" situation? "Forget about it?" Or in between? I was planning to change the tires after the summer anyway, but will I have to do it sooner?
