My Goldfish has a few growths on his head. Does anyone know what this is and what if anything I need to do about it. The fish eats  fine swims fine seems fine except for these growths.

It appears to be a tumor growing on along with the wen on top of the oranda's head.  It's probably either a tumor or irregular wen growth.  Some tumors will turn out to be harmless , but they can be removed surgically. Depending on how proactive you want to be, you can wait a while to see if the tumor keeps growing since the fish is healthy at the moment.
