    Red lump on back of throat

    For a while now Im suffering from post nasal drip and sometimes a light headache. Since Im taking antihistamines the headache has cleared up well, at least for the last weeks.

    It may have or may not have anything to do with the next part, but when I just checked my throat in the mirror I noticed a reddish lump. Its like 0.5 cm in diameter so fairly small. Its also soft to the touch. Not painful at all.
    It should be noted that my throat is already a bit inflamed from the allergies / Post nasal drip. The doc could easily see this with his flashlight. The lump however is new. My headaches finally started to clear up, and now this...

    I just noticed it so I cant see it if it still growing or getting smaller. I do know that 1-2 months ago I checked my throat also and it wasn't there yet.

    I'm kinda freaked out now, but can't go to the doctor for another 3 days.

    Any idea what this might be? Can it be cancerous? Or related to the post nasal drip, so maybe it's just an swelling caused by irritation? Other options?
