It is not possible to tell from gross photos if you have tumors, malignant 
neoplasms, or skeletal anomalies.  We would need to look at sections of both 
skeleton and tissue.  The following paper may be of interest as it is now on 
line now in Coral Reefs and will appear in the November issue of the 

Domart-Coulon, I.J., Traylor-Knowles, N., Peters,E., Elbert,D., Downs,C.A., 
Price,K., Stubbs,J.,McLaughlin, S., Cox, E., Aeby, G., Brown, P.R., & 
Ostrander, G.K.  2006.  Comprehensive characterization of skeletal tissue 
growth anomalies of the finger coral Porites compressa.  Coral Reefs
