Ok, so my moms turtle has some kind of growth or infection maybe? Does anyone know what is wrong with him? He's at least 10 years old.

Ok so I've been doing some research and I believe he is a Actinemys marmorata pallida, otherwise known as a Southwestern Pond Turtle. Or a Actinemys marmorata, also known as a Western Pond Turtle. Everything matches up because my grandma said she got him from a pond in her home down in Northern California, about 10 years ago. Hopefully that helps with the eye thing...

sounds like a classic case of a respitory infection. she needs to see a vet for antibiotics other wise it will not go away on its own, and she will die. also if your stating that is a pacific pond turtle. collected from a pond in N. Cal. then i wouldnt go talking about it as it is a crime, their populations are severly limited and are crictically at risk, they are very rare even within their range... although i would suggest posting in the general forum and not these blog things youll get more information to help, but you need to have your mother get to a vet ASAP in the mena time up the temp and feed high vitamin a foods...
