You'll need to send it to a lens repair service. Do not attempt to disassemble the lens yourself; you'll only make the problem worse and may damage the lens beyond repair.

SOURCE: dirt inside back lens element

The dirt has gotten onto the front element of the rear lens group. You do not want to try partially disassembling the lens to clean it. Either Tamron or a good camera lens repair technician should be able to perform what is called a partial internal CLA (cleaning, lubrication and adjustment) of just rear portions of the lens for fairly cheap. Alternatively you may be able to pick up a used Tamron 28-200 in excellent condition for less than the repair cost of your current lens. If successful, then you could turn around and sell your 28-200 for parts or sell it to someone who knows how to service it.

If it's inbetween the lens elements, there's no way you can get at it. It would have to be taken apart by a service facility recommended by the manufacturer.

What should i do?...my tamron 17-50 began to have a fungus.


Well, that's a great lens and most definitely worth the cleaning/service. I don't know where in the world you are but fungus growing inside a lens is only heard of in high humidity environments and can happen fairly quickly. Are you sure this is a fungus on the inside and not just a clouded smear on the front element? If the lens is having a problem then the camera won't be to far behind. To answer your question more directly "what should I do" my suggestion is to send the lens to a authorized Tamron service/repair center/depot for cleaning. After which get a few of those little moisture absorbing packets and place them in with your photo gear to help reduce the moisture.

Water spot in lens


Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment needed to ensure proper alignment when putting the lens back together, take the lens to a reputable camera shop and have a trained professional do it.

How to get the lens apart to clear bits on the front element


The front element is easy to remove.
There's a plastic cover on the front of the lens which has a very small hole in it.
Get something like a very small screwdriver in that hole and prize the cover off.
Remove the 3 screws in the next plastic cover and remove it.
The next 3 screws you see hold the front lens element on.
This whole part rotates to adjust the infinity focus and is kept in position by those 3 screws.
Make sure you mark the position by maybe making a small scratch in the plastic next to one of the screws.
Or maybe scratch around one of the screws.
With those 3 screws removed the front element with the lens just falls out.
