Flesh coloured lumps on/slightly behind tonsils? Watch

    So since Wednesday last week I've been pretty under the weather.
    On Wednesday I came down suddenly with a sore throat and pain when I swallowed, making it difficult to eat and open my mouth wide because my throat was restricting me. Since then, it's kind of cleared up (only since yesterday) but there's still a pain when I swallow. Yesterday I noticed one flesh coloured bump behind but on my tonsil? My throat was kind of red too.
    Today my throat is less red, I have a dry cough, had a fever briefly, and felt sick briefly, but now I have two flesh coloured lumps on the same tonsil.

    Any idea what it might be or has anyone had this before?

    Anything like this you need to get checked out, I would get a doctors appointment ASAP.

    It could be sign of a throat infection, or could even be a tonsil stone. Drink plenty of fluids, take OTC painkillers if you need to, and get plenty of rest. Also, book an appointment with your GP to get it checked out
