I'm unsure where would be the appropriate form to post this in but today I have discovered a bump in the back of my throat almost near the tonsil area. It is painless and my family says not to worry but I can't help and think its a growth or something bad. A friend told me to watch it and go into the doctor if it becomes worse. Does anyone have any idea what might this be? I do not drink or smoke either. The only problem lately besides this with my throat would be sinus drainage.
