I have a yellow spot like thing on my left tonsil. I went to

Customer Question

Hi, I have a yellow spot like thing on my left tonsil. I went to see my GP and she checked my throat physically by touching it and said I don't have any raised nodes and everything is ok. She said I shouldn't be worried about it and gave me Calvepen 666mg for a week. Its my fourth day but the yellow spot hasn't gone. She said she has referred me to the ENT as well but its nothing urgent as I said I do get the food debris stuck on my tonsils sometime. I don't have any pain in my throat and she checked both tonsils were of the same size. Its just the yellow spot. My throat doesn't hurt, I don't have any raised nodes or lumps or anything. I got my blood tests done a month back and all were fine. Can you please advise?

Thanks Doctor. Could you also confirm if the tonsils are appearing as normal. My GP did check that and said the size is normal with no raised nodes or any lumps in my neck?
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 7 days ago.

Indeed, they both look very normal to me
