Lump on back of throat

I have had this lump on the back of my throat for a few months now, it is starting to worry me. I was wondering if anyone can tell by looking at the photo what it might be? Sorry the photo is kind of gross.

Lots of us tend to get those. Have you had a sore throat, ear, or sinus infection lately? That can cause it.
It could also be an ulcer, caused by food allergies, spices, stress, etc.

You would be best off to see a doctor to rule out any sort of bad infection.

I had a sore throat when I first noticed it a few months ago, but haven't had one since. It's really hard when I touch it so I don't think its an ulcer.

I'm going to go doctors in a week or two to get it checked out.

Thanks for the help!
