Lump in throat

Hi, I have a lump on the left side of my throat. It is right by the tonsil and sort of has a weird shape. It seems like it is harder in the middle and gets softer around it. The center part is probably the size of a dime maybe smaller and then there is a little part off to the side which is the soft part. I have also felt extremely tired before I took antibiotics. I've been to a doctor three times and they didn't seem to think it was too serious. I was given antibiotics and felt a lot better but the lump isn't going away. I took the antibiotics about a month ago. Is this something I should be worried about? The lump also hurts a little lately which is why I'm starting to get worried about it. That might be because I keep touching it. If anyone has any helpful information that would be appreciated.

P.S. I am 22 year old male and a non smoker if that helps any.

Also, I seem to have increased body odor coming from my arm pits.

Re: Lump in throat

This doesn't sound normal. I would ask for a referral to a ENT doc. This needs to be investigated. It may be nothing serious, but you need to know that for sure.
