Customer Question

I noticed a lump at the back of my throat about a year ago, a told my GP but she says she couldn't find anything, now this lump its bigger e has become an open wound, i can fell it when a swallow and looking at the mirror I can see small red dots on it, like little veins or blood. I called the GP but I'll have to way more than a month for an appointment. I am supper worried and considering book an appointment in a privet clinic. Do I need a referral to see an otolaryngologist?

Thanks for sharing

This seems like a small tonsillar cyst

It does not look like anything serious to me

You should have a referral to an ENT surgeon

After examining directly a decision to excise it can be made
