Unlikely!: At your age, tonsillar cancer is unlikely. It may be due to inflammation of th tonsils or scratch to the throat during the eating process. Keep watching it to make sure it goes away..

If it doesn't resolve, you should see an ENT specialist. With chronic tonsillitis, you might benefit from having your tonsils removed.
