Default Is this stud damaged?

I am replacing the dry wall in my bathroom. When I remove the old dry wall, I saw this thing on the stud (see attached picture). Initially I thought it's termites damage. But it's hard/solid. What could this be? Do I need to do anything before putting on the new dry wall?

At first I thought this post was going to be about Havasu, and yes, he's damaged (bionic)...

The spot appears to be a knot with some sap that has leaked, if the wood surrounding it is solid, I'd never worry about it again.

Pitch or resin pocket in the wood. Completely natural, nothing to worry about.

And welcome to the site.

If the stud is Douglas fir, the resin is also used for other things
