Painless red/fleshy pea-sized lump on Rh side of throat where tonsil should be. Tonsils removed age 8. Throbbing sensation in neck in lymph area?

Painless red/fleshy pea-sized lump on Rh side of throat where tonsil should be. Tonsils removed age 8. Throbbing sensation in neck in lymph area?

A Few Possibilities: Even with removal of tonsils there can be residual portions of the tonsil left behind that respond to allergies and infection with swelling. It could also be what we call an anterior cervical chain lymph node. Most of the time swollen tonsils and lymph nodes indicate an inflammatory process somewhere in the head and neck. If it's not better by now, you need to see a healthcare professional. ...Read more

Viral Pharyngitis: Fall/Winter is when we see an increase in viral illness in the northern hemisphere, and your constellation of symptoms sound consistent with a Viral Pharyngitis, or a viral inflammation of your throat. The fleshy bump is likely mild swelling of your tonsil area, or even could be a fold of tissue you just haven't noticed before. Cancer would be extremely unlikely, but you should visit your doctor. ...Read more

I quit smoking cold turkey 6 days ago and my mouth looks fleshy or something. Is this okay, normal?

I quit smoking cold turkey 6 days ago and my mouth looks fleshy or something. Is this okay, normal?

Probably OK: Nice job stopping smoking! This can be hard for people to do. It's not clear what 'fleshy mouth' means without seeing you, but if it is not associated with facial swelling, trouble swallowing or breathing, or having any kind of allergy symptoms, it's likely that everything is fine. Now that you're getting healthier - make sure you get enough sleep, eat right and get enough exercise and water. ...Read more

Why do I feel a weird fleshy thing in my mouth after wisdom teeth extraction?

Granulation tissue: Granulation tissue is the pink, fleshy type tissue that replaces a blood clot in extraction sockets. It grows from the base of a socket and fills the hole where the tooth was to protect the underlying new bone growth. Do not play or remove this tissue - it is a good thing and helps to keep you painfree while the healing is taking place. ...Read more

Get checked: Although at your age, something bad seems improbable, black lesion could either be a small area of dead tissue as a result of infection, fungus or an actual tissue growth. Best to get this checked at your earliest opportunity. Depending on what it is, you may need a biopsy, tonsillectomy or some other medical treatment. Best to get it figured out soon. Best of luck to you. ...Read more

Doctor can check: New throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, one sees a doctor if the sore throat is unusually sore, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). A small, dark red lump on on a tonsil maybe was a site of slight bleeding. ...Read more

I just had my tonsils and adenoids removed it's been about 3-4 weeks and now I have a small yellow growth near the surgical sight what could this be?

I think: You may be noticing a SUTURE (STITCH) which will dissolve with time! If no other symptoms ignore it! If it does not get smaller in a few weeks. Get the area inspected by your PCP (Primary Care Provider)

Hope this helps!
