Does a White/Yellowish Bump in the Tonsil Indicate any Oral Diseases?
I have a white/yellowish bump on my left tonsil, and I am worried I may have cancer.
Any type of spot or abnormal looking changes (granulation or ulceration) in the tonsillary region for more than a week should be evaluated and possibly biopsied by an ENT. So my recommendation is going to be get an appointment of ENT if it is persisting.
