Sanford,

I can't tell what fungus that is from the description or in fact if it is a fungus. I suggest you take some photos of the swollen areas and if possible a sample to your County Extension Office and see if they can identify the problem and if necessary prescribe an appropriate remedy. Their contact info is:
1402 Band Rd, Rosenberg, TX 77471
281-342-3034
The horticulture agent's name is Mark Countryman.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
