See your dentist to be sure that it's not abnormality--especialy if high risk behaviors exist. ...Read more

Bumps from PND: When you have postnasal drip, the drainage goes via lllymphatics to the back of the throat. Those bumps are simply organized tiny tonsils to stop the infection from spreading.

Viral infection: The lumps in the back of the tongue may be circumvallate papillae which are taste buds. They may be inflamed. The red spots in the back of your throat may be infected lymph nodes. Although the most likely diagnosis is an upper respiratory tract viral infection, I would strongly recommend you see a physician for a culture and sensitivity of the yellow material in the back of the throat. ...Read more

Meaningless: You have nerve endings EVERYWHERE. That tells you nothing about whatever's bothering you. It's like explaining a heart attack by saying there are nerve endings in the heart. It explains nothing except that your chiropractor's a quack who knows as much about the human body as you do. Chiropractic is 100% bogus. Stay away from those charlatans; they're a threat to your health. ...Read more

A small number of lesions grow in posterior 1/3 just before the epiglottis. It can be felt as a firm mid line lump and should be checked by H&N surgeon. If bx +, excision is by transhyoid pharyngotomy. ...Read more
