There Is A Lump On The Upper Side Of The Throat?
Good evening, I have a question. On the wall of my oropharynx there are many nodules and clearly visible blood vessels. This description of my oropharynx has been known for a long time about 1 year ago and there is no pain in swallowing.rnCurrently, I have painful swallowing and pain when coughing. After I saw for myself using a penlight, I saw on the wall of my oropharynx there was a mass on the right and left.rnAccording to the doctor, what happened to me? What is the next action I should take. Thank you.
In the part between the mouth and the throat (oral-pharynx or oropharynx) there is a gap where in that area there are tonsils or what are known as tonsils. The masses referred to on the right and left may be tonsils that can enlarge when there is inflammation but are not located on the back wall of the throat. On the tonsils or tonsils themselves can arise various conditions that vary in each individual which can also be triggered by the onset of inflammation.
Inflammation of the tonsils can also cause several complications, one of which is causing lumps on the tonsils themselves or in the throat wall, known as quinsy or peritonsillar abscess where symptoms such as sore throat, difficulty speaking, high fever, and swelling of the mouth and throat.
To confirm the condition experienced, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor or an ENT specialist. Later, a physical examination and necessary support will be carried out before determining whether it is sufficient to administer medication or if medical action is necessary.
Try to drink more water, avoid foods that trigger throat irritation, shout less or speak loudly, use a mask when in an open area, avoid smoking and immediately consult a doctor to find out your condition.
