I have a sore pain at the back of my mouth on the right

This answer was rated:

Hi, I have a sore pain at the back of my mouth on the right side for around 5 days now, the pain I believe is around the tonsil and upper pallette but when I look I can't see anything but it is quite painful especially when eating and drinking. Picture links below. What could this be?
Do you have any other pics?

No that's it, they all look like that, I can't see anything but there is a definite sore feeling in the mouth, I also get slight ear ache also
I suspect this is an apthous ulcer. commonly known as a canker sore

I also came to that conclusion. It's hard to see in the pic but there is a very tiny spot on the arch to the throat, that could be a canker sore causing the problem. Thank you for your help
