Bumps at back of throat [pics]

I've noticed these bumps at the back of my throat. It isn't sore but it looks it. I also have a feeling of pressure in my jowls.

I cannot give personal advice over the internet.

In general, there are a variety of reasons that can cause bumps to be in the back of the throat.  Infection would be the most common, including a variety of viral issues.  If this is the case, they normally spontaneously resolve.

Bacterial infections, like strep, can also cause bump-like lesions.  If suspected, a throat culture can be obtained.  

Going to your personal physician, or in refractory cases, an ENT specialist, would be the next appropriate step.
