This is Dr. David

these bumps on the back of your throat can be normal taste buds or normal small submucosal minor salivary glands which are right under your skin in the back of your throat

they don't hurt, they don't get larger.

they don't sound worrisome or dangerous.

let me know fi you have questions.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ok how will they go away could they be due to allergies or could i be allergic to something as i have bumps behind tonsils on back of throat they swell up when have sore throat and sometimes get white pus on them could it be granular larygitus as read on internet about few things

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
they may never go away

if they are taste buds or normal minor salivary glands, they are normal to be there.

if you dont' have pus and tonsil infection now, those bumps are not filled with pus

they are normal bumps which haven't changed

if they were filled with pus or infection, they would have grown and caused more pus and throat infection

but if they haven't changed, they are benign and normal.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
have you shown them to your doctor?

are you willing to see your doctor and get a biopsy of the area to see what that shows?
