Bump on tonsils & lack of energy

Over the past week or so I have experienced a distinct lack of energy. Just yesterday I also noticed what I thought was a sore throat, however, I was able to look into my mouth with a mirror and flashlight and found what appears to be a small bump on my right tonsil. It does not hurt, per se, but is definitely noticeable. I am just concerned as to what this could possibly be. The bump is is just about the same red-ish color as the rest of my mouth/tonsils, perhaps slightly more white in color. I was able to take a picture of the inside of my mouth with a clear view of the bump, but I can't seem to find how to include a photo in a post.

Re: Bump on tonsils & lack of energy

If your throat is sore with excessive tiredness, plus the bump on tonsil, you might want to see your Dr for a strept culture and possible mono test. It sounds like tonsillitis which can be caused by various bacteria and viruses.
