Fished a tourney this weekend and picked up this guy, is this caused by an infection? Cancer?

Looks like a growth or tumor maybe.
Or he could be getting ready for Halloween.

Looks like a fungus to me. Probably was caught in the past and infection set in. Later a fungus spore settled and it never cured. Could also be some larva that hatched.

I don't know, but I do know that I wouldn't touch it. Looks like a nasty infection

I would definitely contact Texas Parks and Wildlife. I assume you already released the fish which would have been best to keep it for testing. If it's not possible to keep the fish alive then it's best to put on ice and freeze it until you can get it to TP&W. Hopefully they will test the water quality.
