Should i see someone on this lump behind tonsil?

Lost 20 pounds in padt couple weeks and have a weird lump in throat on or near tonsil. Also looks as if theres a hole in tonsil on opposite side. More than happy to show picture. Idk if it has anything to do with it but really hard to swallow any pill. Went to get wisdom tooth pulled the other day but oral surgeon either didnt see or notice it either nor did he acknowledge whiteiss ulsor looking lump on inside of bottom jaw.

Hello and welcome to the forum.  We're sorry you are going through this and do encourage you to be seen by your doctor or at the very least, call and talk to them about it.  Is your throat sore as well?  Before your wisdom tooth extraction, did you have difficulty swallowing a pill?  How long ago was the extraction?  The lump appeared after that or was there prior?
