Your observation about coral tumours on Acropora are interesting.  Tumours
have been reported from Acropora in Oman (see p 93 of Corals of Oman by S L
Coles which has just been posted on the web ).  I have also
seen abnormal growths in Porites colonies in the Muscat area which to my
eye look cancerous.  I would also be keen to make contact with researchers
who have been investigating tumours in corals.
