Thumbs down Canon Powershot XS230, strange mark

Have a Canon Powershot XS230. Took some photos in the rain yesterday.

Noticed a mark in the top left of the screen, like a jagged paper tear about 1 cm in size.

The mark does not show on the photos I took. it is there while looking at a scene ready to photograph. It is there when reviewing photos on the screen. When the camera is off there is no mark apparent on the viewing screen.

Have cleaned screen and lens to no avail.

Maybe some water / condensation has got 'inside' somehow and then dried out causing the above effect?

Anyone had similar? Is there any cure? Is it worth looking at a repair as an inspection fee of ~75 will not be worthwhile.

Generally happy with the camera so may just have to keep on using it and ignoring the distraction.

As long as it's not affecting the pics, I'd ignore it.

It could be moisture-related, or even shock damage that only shows up when it's on?
