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.
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
