I am worried I have throat / tonsil cancer, is this cancer or anything to be concerned about?

I am worried I have throat/tonsil cancer. I have 2 areas 1 on each tonsil that shouldn’t be there and I’m not sure how long they have been there. I am 36 year old male with HTN and Gerd. I smoke a pack per day and have since I was 15. My throat doesn’t hurt and I seem to have no other symptoms. Is this cancer or anything to be concerned about? Both things are squishy and painless.

Age: 36
Medications: Prilosec and Hydrochlorizide
General Information: No

It is not necessary that every lump is cancerous.
Also just a view is not sufficient and ethical to diagnose cancer..
So it is advisable to get it clinically checked and if there is a doubt a Biopsy should be done to confirm..
So please consult an ENT SURGEON and get examined clinically..

Hope this helps..

Regards .

Hello.A detailed history, clinical examination and tests are necessary for diagnosis. Do you have weight loss and loss of appetite? Cancer would cause symptoms. See an ENT surgeon and get examined..Best wishes!

I’m little late but it looks like condyloma from hpv. I hope you’ve got the treatment.
