Are whitish-yellow lumps on the posterior pharynx dangerous? What are they?

Are whitish-yellow lumps on the posterior pharynx dangerous? What are they?

Unusual: It could be an infection(in which case your throat will hurt when you swallow food). Such bumps can be enlarged tonsils whichcan get infection and show yellow spots on the surface. If you are concerned you should show it to your GP or seek and ENT specialist's opinion. I do not think they are dangerous unless there is sore throat in which case it could be strept throat requiring antibiotic treatm ...Read more

Had posterior vagina wall repair 2 weeks ago. Weird bumps and lumps all around the sutures, looks like little balls of flesh. Causes? Will it go away?

Had posterior vagina wall repair 2 weeks ago. Weird bumps and lumps all around the sutures, looks like little balls of flesh. Causes? Will it go away?

Probably normal: Tissue trauma from surgery initiates the body's natural healing mechanisms including the development of platelet rich plasma (PRP). The gel matrix that forms looks like swollen tissue. If you have ever had a scab that you looked under, the yellow "goo" in a wound is platelet rich plasma which is healing the trauma of a tissue wound. A discharge that looks like pus would be abnormal. ...Read more

I have a painless lump in my posterior labia majora for more than a year now. Its movable and its like the size of a pea. Is this inflammed lymphnode?

Probably not: If you've had it for a year now, its not an inflammed anything, especially if its not red or tender. It's most likely an inclusion cyst, but your doctor would have to look at it to make a definite diagtnosis. ...Read more

Small hard lump deep within neck for two months. Ultrasound results say "No visible mass. There is shadowing 5 mm calcification in the deep soft tissue of the left posterior neck, seems to correspond to a palpable lump". Feeling scared about this?

Small hard lump deep within neck for two months. Ultrasound results say "No visible mass. There is shadowing 5 mm calcification in the deep soft tissue of the left posterior neck, seems to correspond to a palpable lump". 

Feeling scared about this?

Neck lump: Great that you had it checked. Did you have any sort of prior injury to that spot? Even acne can leave a calcification behind after it heals. Did the radiologist recommend repeating the sonogram in 6-12 months? Might help to see if there is a change over time.
Don't worry, but do recheck it. ...Read more

Not HIV: Test results are far more reliable than symptoms in judging new HIV infections, and this pattern of possible lymph node inflammation symptoms doesn't fit HIV. See your doctor if your symptoms continue or you are otherwise concerned, but you can be sure HIV is not the cause. ...Read more

Looking in my throat i noticed small white patch/lump on posterior pharyngeal wall.It is been there a while always the same size.Is it cancer?

Looking in my throat i noticed small white patch/lump on posterior pharyngeal wall.It is been there a while always the same size.Is it cancer?

Biopsy could help: Commonly white lines or patches in the oral pharynx may be due to irritation, so called leukoplakia; however, pre-malignant lesions called dysplasia may present as red or white discrete lesions in the oral pharynx as well, but you are quite young for that. Occasionally infections or some inflammatory conditions may also present as white plaques in the mouth. A clinical exam could help. ...Read more

Is it normal on CT to show what appears to be erosion on the posterior side of the manubrium? I have residual thymus, and a mass in my sternal notch.

Have 5-6 mm calcified lump in the posterior neck, doctor recommend imaging. Should do MRI with and without contrast or CT w/ contrast? Benefits/risks?

Have 5-6 mm calcified lump in the posterior neck, doctor recommend imaging. Should do MRI with and without contrast or CT w/ contrast? Benefits/risks?

Neither!: If you know the lump is calcified, you're best off not doing any imaging. If you want to know what it is, go to a surgeon or pathologist who can manage a simple biopsy, probably in his office, to figure out what it is. A FNA (fine needle aspiration) may work out for you. If you REALLY need to know if it is solid or a cyst, then ultrasound is better. CT involves radiation. MRIs are $$. Avoid them. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes: It sounds like you have swollen lymph nodes, These can last several months in the absence of an infection. If you feel they are not getting better, I would follow up with your primary care physician as she may need to get blood work and possibly a biopsy to make sure there's nothing else going on ...Read more
