When a tonsillectomy is performed the tonsils are separated from muscle. The bump you are identifying is likely a little bit of leftover tonsil tissue. This won't cause you any trouble. ...Read more

Straight line red bumps on middle back wall of throat going down pharynx.they turn white when i strain throat and back to red when i leave it. causes?

Only then do you need further checking. ...Read more
