Is it possible to have a mucocele on tonsil covering? Semi hard small bump. Ent says nothing alarming. Would lymphatic tissue cause a bump? Worried:(

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

The tonsil is comprised of bumpy lymphatic tissue with an irregular surface.
Additional bumps may be due to a mucocele, cryptic debris, lymphatic tissue or neoplasia. Enlarging masses in the tonsils should be evaluated and possibly biopsied.
