[OM] fungus

I have a 50 mm f1.8 lens that an employee of a photo shop told me was
full of fungus.

The only thing that I can see in the lens is some white lines that look
like spider webs in it.  The lens takes perfectly good pictures so far
as I can tell.  Is this the fungus?

What ill effects can be caused by fungus?   Can it be removed from the
lens?  Is is economically prudent given the cheap cost of a 50 mm 1.8
lens to have it removed?

Thanks
