So i woke up the other morning with that feeling you get right before you get a sore throat, so i thaught i was coming down with something. however, last night, i noticed that the soreness was only in one specific area of my throat. the very back of my mouth on my right side.
i checked in the mirror this morning and there is a large swollen lump that hurts when i poke it, swallow, eat, or anything. it doesn't hurt to breathe, or restrict air flow in any way.
my questions are this:
What could it be?
Should i see a doctor? (no insurance/ very little money. would like to only if it's vital)
Is there anything i can do at home to help it go away?
