Persistent, inflamed lymphatic tissue in back of throat?
About two months ago I was very sick with a terrible sore throat/cough that lasted for two weeks. Now, two months later, my throat still looks a little "off". I had a tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy over a year ago. In the back of my throat, what the doctor called "lymphatic tissue" is slightly swollen; it looks irritated, and one of the swollen spots has two tiny white spots. I wouldn't exactly say that it hurts, but if I have talked a lot, especially if I haven't been drinking water, it feels slightly irritated. I went to see an ent regarding this, and she dismissed me without any concern. She had an attitude as if she were wasting her time seeing me. I am only concerned because I am not sick, and it has been going on for a little over two months. Why might this be? Should I be worried, or seek a second opinion? Thank you!
