Sounds normal : There are a lot of mucosal irregularities in that area. If you're really concerned then see an ENT.

Yes, it can be.: We all have lymphoid tissue underneath the mucosal surface at the back of our mouths. If you had a recent cold or allergy, these bumps of lymph cells can become raised during this time of year and are nothing to be concerned about in a healthy teen. You could take a photograph of it and request a consult if it remains concerning for you, via HealthTap Concierge @ healthtap.com/saurbornmd
