My boyfriend has white exudate on his throat and was told that it wasnt strep throat what else could it be?

Just came from the doctor cause I was feeling a bump on my cervix but he said he don't see no bump around my cervix but I feel it should i be worried?

Probably not: Your doctor can't feel what you feel, he can only look and tell you what he sees. If your exam was reassuring, I would wait and see if it goes away on its own. If it doesn't go away in 6 weeks or so, you can go back to your doc and say, "Hey, that bump is still there. Can you take a closer look?" Best wishes! ...Read more
