Tonsils red and inflamed and raised bump on gum...
Just wondering. I have allergies. My tonsils get red and inflamed often. My right one gets inflamed more then my left. Also on my right gum behind the last tooth I have a raised lump. It appears to never go away completely, and it gets worse and I usually get a earache and sore throat (hoarseness) at the same time with the inflamed tonsils.
I have had my gums checked and the doctor never seems to give it much concern. It bothers me to often.My tonsils bother me often.
My question is. Is this related to my Thyroid? Cancer??
What could be causing these problems??
I now have red lumps in the back of my throat. I still have the other symptoms. Inflamed tonsils,bump on gum,earache in left ear,and hoarseness.
How does one know if this is throat cancer or allergies?
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms, though these are unlikely to the related to thyroid cancer. There could be a number of reasons for recurrent allergies/ infections. Cancer would be slow and gradual to develop, while infections/ inflammations would normally be intermittent with periods of resolution. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an ENT surgeon for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
