Question:

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.

Answer:

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.
