If one is calling it a polyp and another says it's a tumor, i'd worry it's a tumor even though it's likely to be a benign polyp

i'd get another second opinion

Hi  I just had a polyp removed from the back of my throat on the side by my tonsils and it was small but the pain after was severe enough for me to take 2 pain pills. That was last friday and this is monday and it is getting better.  According to the doctor it is not malignant.
It seems alot of people get these in their lifetime.  Hope this is the last one for me. I hope you are going to a good ENT doctor.  That is the only doctor for the throat that I would go to.
