White Painful Spot on back of throat S/P tonsilectomy
I had a tonsillectomy about 4 months ago (in November) and currently have 1 painful, white spot on the back of my throat. This is the second time this has happened since the surgery (the first one looked nearly identical but had more of a reddish look around the white spot). I saw my ENT after this happened the first time, but by the time I got in to see him, the white spot was gone (it had only lasted about 1 day). He said it might’ve been some leftover tonsil tissue that was irritated (?), although my tonsils had rarely hurt this bad when they were irritated. It is very painful to swallow when this happens. Has anyone seen this before? Or have any idea what it might be?
