Question comet / snail help

This seems really silly for me to ask but can a snail live inside a goldfish kinda like a parasite/ host deal.
I have a 10 inch comet(8yrs old). It seemed to at one night(about a month ago) when I heard them kinda splashing around. When I went to investigate I fliped on the light in the 55gallon and I noticed a snail like appendage stick out of the fishes gentail opening. I know what your think it was poo right. But what I saw was light tan/pink with tiny red dots on it. But what really amazed me is that it was about a inch long and after watching it for acouple of minutes it sucked its self back into the fish. I have seen plenty of fish poo to realize this wasn't normal.
no bring us forward to last week I seen my same fish face swell on one side and admit a white puss like substance. I treated the tank for his what I thought was a infection from hitting a rock. Now I have notice these little tiny tiny white larve on the side of my tank which look like very very small snails. They are the size of the point of a pin. I tried getting a pic but my camera can't focus on them. Can anybody give me any advise on this I'm really scratching my head on this one. Thanks
