Runflat with sidewall "egg"

Hi, i have a runflat tyre that has developed a small egg shaped swelling on the sidewall of my tyre next to the rim of the alloy, question is can this be repaired? Or do i need to get a new tyre for it.

Cheers for any advice.

New tyre job. Wouldn't even entertain trying to get that repaired. If it goes bang at 60 or something....

Didnt think sidewall eggs could be repaired. Even a puncture on a sidewall wouldnt be repairable.
