Tubercles Or White Spot?

Ok, I was given 2 fantail goldfish about 17 months ago. I noticed some small white spots appearing on both fish, and after reading about diseases, i started treating them for whitespot. I was getting desperate as nothing was working and after several different types of chemical treatments i decided to leave the fish alone before I killed them with an overdose. Over time the spots never got any better, but did not get worse either. Now after gathering information and seeing images I beleive they are tubercules as they are only on the gills and front fins.Is this normal for the fish to have tubercles for this length of time or will they always have them if they do not come into contact with any females. can anyone put my mind at rest please

It's normal for them. It comes and goes. It just depends when in my experience. You're not the first to mistake it for ich so don't worry about it.:)
