Lump forming on arch of tonsil and just below tonsil
I've noticed a flesh colored lump on my left tonsil - seems like its in the middle of the arch. Below this - another longer lump is forming and seems to be going down my throat. My tonsil is not swollen.
This had been here for a few months now and has not been causing any pain or discomfort. It has not been growing either.
I know that it is not a tonsil stone as it is not white hard and I can't pick anything out of the lump.

Thank you

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If the lump is not a tonsil stone and if there is no evidence of pus, then the lump is likely to be a tumor. Are the neck nodes enlarged? Usually with infections, there is inflammation with swelling redness and pain. In the absence of which, it is likely to be a tumor. Please consult your doctor for an evaluation, he may take a biopsy if needed.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
