hard lump in throat

ok so i have one little question here. i noticed that on the back of my throat there is one hard lump. it's like right behind my uvula. it has kinda the same color as the rest of my throat but just at the top of it it's a little bit more white. is this something normal?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The swelling could be a cyst. If there is accompanying swelling, redness, discharge and fever it is most probably an infection. You may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
