I have a white growth (lump) in the side of my throat?

There is a white ball of something in the back right hand side of my throat. Its sticking out and i can feel it so its annoying me. It looks like a clumped ball of tonsil stones but it isnt them. I have no other symptoms except the annoyance of feeling it there. female, 18, no medical history

hi
you are right.It doesnt seem to be related to the tonsills as its location is much behind the posterior tonsillar fold. It may be a calcified posterior pharyngeal lymph node. The calcific deposit is stuck up over the inflammed lymph node,this in turn causes accumulation of more debris . You should get the deposit removed and drain out the necrotic debris from a ent specialist.
Thanks

HI
ITS A TYPE OF FUNGAL INFECTION DUE TO POOR ORAL HYGIENE. SUCH WHITE SCAB LIKE THINGS USUALLY FALL OFF ON THEIR OWN AFTER A FEW DAYS FOLLOWED BY BLEEDING. WAIT FOR FEW DAYS FOR IT TO FALL OFF SPONTANEOUSLY. IF ITS BOTHERING YOU TOO MUCH,THEN GET IT REMOVED FROM A DOCTOR

hello there
it feels like a calcified oral boil /furuncle. If you have high calcium content in your body,or you have a tendancy for ectopic calcium deposition,then such lesions are common. You should not neglect it and get it removed from a ent specialist at the earliest
