large red lump posterior to the uvula -
My husband has complained of slight cough for months. Now has a large red inflammed lump posterior to the uvula. What can cause this and how is it treated.
It is not possible to make a diagnosis of your specific situation based upon a description. If the area is persistent, it is best to follow up directly with your health professional such as an ear, nose, throat surgeon for answers to your question.
Thank you for visiting NetWellness.
