Hi, I`m a bit concerned. About 4 days ago while checking my tonsils for stones (ew), I noticed about 4 slightly raised light colored (maybe even off-white) circles/ovals BENEATH my tonsils where it goes flat, they`re on both tonsils, so about 8 total (4 on each), it kind of looks like bunched up skin until I somehow push that area forward to expose that they are actually circular in shape and 4 distinct spots. The color is about a shade or 2 lighter then the skin they are on. This is only visible if I move the back of my tongue down to see down there. I felt them and they were raised but it didn`t hurt. I have no sore throat... I dont smoke or do smokeless tobacco or drugs, nor do i drink etc. I do have post nasal drip, but I think that may be irrelevent to this case.
Also for a few months now, I get non-raised red small spots on my inner bottom lip that disappear and then return, they don`t hurt either. I told my doctor early on and he looked at it and said he thought it was a vitamin dificiency. Now, i`m wondering if the two are related.
I also notice with looks to be bumpy extra skin conntected to the back of my tongue by where it seems the tongue is connected to, but i`m not sure if thats something everyone has. Again, its not visible unless I press my tongue down to see that far back, and stick my tongue out too.
Another thing, years ago when I was in elementary school a red spot appeared on my hand beneath the skin, the size of a pin head. Im well out of school and it`s still there. If I push a clear glass over it, it disappears, but once the pressure is let up it can be seen again. Well, a few months ago, the same type of pin head spot appeared on my lip as well. I pressed a clear glass over it and it disappears, but when pressure is let up i can see the spot again. This tell me that these red pin pricks are not "wounds that didnt heal" but rather something else... I`ve no idea what and the spot on my lip is embarassing.
I contacted my dr and am waiting to hear back. Any thoughts on what this might be? I am admittedly known to be a pranoid person and a bit of a hypochondriac, but I can`t help to think I may have mouth cancer.
