964 Cam Shaft Problem - How Bad?

While working on a valve adjustment, I found the following "ridge" on the # 5 exhaust cam at the top of the lobe.



The car is a 90 C2 with 112k miles. Synthetic oil, autoxed, and a couple DE's, but mostly daily driving.

Can you give me a glimpse of the future. Can it be reground? (I assume it's going to heck quick if I ignore it..... ) What can cause this? There isn't any scoring on the cam, but it's a heck of a ridge.

Thanks for any advice.

The car hasn't got any leaks by the heads, so i'm trying to keep from taking the engine apart too far........
