In brief: It's hard to say...
Please consider seeing an ENT or dentist who can evaluate this.
You may also see your personal physician. I would not sit on this; please have it evaluated soon.

In brief: Throat abscess
An abscess is usually caused by a bacterial infection that leads to pus that accumulates in a closed space.
I am not clear as to the the exact location you described in your question. Was the diagnosis of abscess made by a medical provider? Has treatment for the cause of the abscess been prescribed?
