Long, stringy growth next to tonsil.
Hello, I have a long, almost tiny finger type growth next to my left tonsil (your right.) It's rubbing on my throat making me feel like i have food trapped in my throat. One minute my throat is perfect, and I had some crisps (potato chips) and then suddenly i felt this thing in my throat thinking it was food. It wasn't until I returned home that i noticed a tiny growth on my tonsil. It looks as if I had a normal tonsil, and for some reason a potato chip has sliced it half ways and is still attatched at the bottom, and flaps forward causing irritation. If i push it back up with a Qtip, it stays up for a while and looks like it should join on to my tonsil but wasnt bleeding or anything i dont think. Could this just be a pollyp? I asked my friends mother who is a nurse and she said it probably is. Or is this something more serious? I'm going to the doctors friday but I just want some peace of mind. If it was cancer, would it grow in such a strange, finger/even a tiny penis kind of way!? Or would it grow in like a lump kind of way, not a weird worm thing? It's not painful, just annoying. I'm a 20 year old male. Otherwise perfectly healthy, no smoking, no drinking. Thanks for any help!

This finger like thing, is it bony? If it is, have you looked into Eagle's syndrome?
