lrg black lump w/ white cotton looking growth on it

I have a sm. percula, that has a lrg black growth w/ lots of a white cotton stringy stuff on top. Located on its bottom jaw. I removed him and placed him in my hospital tank about 12 days ago. I was given tablets to medicate for viral and bacterial 5 day treatment. Lump is still growing, it is now getting hard for the percula to eat as the growth is so large. The dealer I got him from is unsure what this may be. Has anyone heard of this type of growth?

I sent images via. post reply. It didnt seem to work. I took some new photos as his condition has changed. The lumps fell of sometime in the night leaving a lrg hole in his face. He is moving around lots. Will try to post pictures again. If it is too late for this percula just knowing what the illness was would be great so I could avoid it getting in my lrg tank. At this time other tank is doing very well no illness.
