White tonsil sized lump at the base of my tongue
Hi, thanks for reading, I hope you can help. Today I developed a sore throat which doesn't feel any different from a normal sore throat, but looking in the mirror if I stick my tongue out as far as I can, I can just about see a large white lump in the middle of my tongue, right at the back. It's shaped almost like a tooth - slightly wider at the top. It's white, with blood vessels visible, and it's nearly as big as my tonsils (which don't seem swollen).

It's quite a worrying sight! Browsing the internet I wasn't able to find any reports of anything similar.

Any responses are greatly appreciated!

With more searching it looks like it might just be my epiglottis I'm just about managing to see?

Could be many things. And other things should be taken into consideration- such as if it's painful, if it's draining, if you're a smoker/dipper, other symptoms. If it doesn't go away in a week-10 days I would go see your family doctor or an ENT
