My oscar has devolved a bump between his eyes. It almost looks like a pimple with no head on it. He is in a 75 gallon tank with a silver dollar and two Jack Dempseys.

I tried to upload a photo from my phone. As you can tell it didn't work. I will take a photo with my digital camera and post it as soon as possible.

The bump seems to have gone away and let behind a small hole. Is this hole in the head disease?

From what I see from the pic provided, the fish looks to be ok. Be sure you are not mistaking the hole for either a nostril or sensory pit. Clearer, closer pics would be another great help.

i agree with Dave (Suprd71) perhaps, it was just a nostril or sensory pit...
if you are refering to the small white spot... that is nothing...

I believe this is a better closer pic.

yes that is the fishes nostril area, but there is also something there. Possible bit of erosion, maybe a spot of fungus. Keep water very clean. What is your regular tank maintenance, water changes etc.
