Fungus Over-Reaction?

Hi Everyone:

I have a chance to buy two cine lenses from a dealer here in India. They come in a two for one sale on eBay. However, the seller says that one of the lenses has fungus spots "inside". The seller says:

"The fungus is from inside. Please note that as of now the lens can be used without cleaning & will give Exc results."

I tend to over-react to such things. So I want to check with this forum. Can the fungus spread to other lenses? Not only my lenses but even his lenses? I have expensive camera equipment which is fungus free. I keep all my equipment in coolers with desiccant. I will probably end up throwing away the fungus-blighted lens or offer a lower price without this lens, but does that mean I should not buy from him generally?

Anyways, any opinions on this topic will be appreciated.

-Charles
