In brief: Tonsil Cyst

Tonsil cysts are usually visible on the surface of the tonsil and can be seen during an oral exam. If you are concerned about a tonsil cyst, make sure to see your primary care provider or your local ear nose and throat specialist.

In brief: Direct inspection

You can usually see a cyst on the tonsil.
Other conditions such as papilloma can also be identified directly. Best to see your otolaryngologist for an exam and proper diagnosis.
