| | what could this be ? (weird plate like growth in throat and bumps on tongue)
I'm a 25 yr old female who recently re-developed extreme allergies from im guessing the pollen in the air and other things outdoors as well as teh pet dander of my two long haired cats (i think its all the dander that has accumulated in my small apartment bc i had a larger apnt before which gave more room for the dander to spread away from me but then again , they were always sleepiing in my face and i never suffered from allergies this bad). I have also had bad heart burn almost every day if i eat or dont eat, and i show all symptoms of gerd and acid reflux disease. I have no doubt i have this.
With that said, i have just discovered a platelike growth in the back of my throat(unless that is supposed to be there and i never felt it or its something that is supposed to be there but its inflamed and therefore bigger?) and medium red bumps on the back of my tongue towards my throat. The reason why i was feeling back there was because i have had trouble swallowing and have had a nagging cough, along with a feeling of something in my throat, im always clearing it. My question is, could this be an inflammation from a sinus infection or allergies, or can it be a tumor/cyst either benign or cancerous ? Regardless of what it coudl be i do know that i should see a doctor asap, and i dont have insurance or a regular doctor, but i am going to go to the ER tomorrow morning as i know i should not let this linger. My question is can anyone relate to this, did they have a biopsy or any other procedure to detect the culprit? If you can give me any insight on this i would be greatly appreciative, just so i can be aware of what i might be facing. Thank you for your help.
