growth on uvula

I have a very small growth on the top of my uvula -- close to the  
soft palate, that's been there for over 2 months. It is flesh  
colored. I can always feel it...like there's a hair or something back  
there. It is quite bothersome...but not painful. I've noticed post-
nasal dripping lately down the back of my throat too, which I don't  
know if it's related. I don't smoke, but do drink sometimes. My  
dentist was not concerned, but I plan to see an ENT specialist. I  
worry I'll have to have it removed (how can they do that without me  
gagging??) I also worry about the cost of removal/biopsy since I  
don't have insurance. But I'm guessing I shouldn't wait much longer.  
Can this go away on its own?
