    Painful 'bump' on tonsil

    A couple months ago I felt pain inside my mouth, near my tonsil. I felt back there and felt a small bump. I went to see my Dr. and she said if it didn't go away she'd refer me to an ENT, calling it a tonsil nodule. It went away after a week or so and I thought nothing more of it. Last week, it came back and I've had it for almost 2 weeks. It's a small bump, not hard and it hurts when I touch it. I'm always sticking my finger back near my tonsils to push out those yucky white things that collect in there. I'm wondering if I irritated it. But I do it to both tonsils and the other one is fine. Any ideas?

    Hi ljs3,
    You should go and see your ENT. It's not good to keep sticking your finger back near your tonsils "to push out those yucky white things." Please check with your ENT. Hope you feel better soon.
    Embrace the beauty of silent moments and simple things.
