28, male. 5'10", 145lbs.
No family history of cancer. Personal history of lifelong sinus problems, chronic drainage, seasonal allergies, frequent mild sore throats. Tonsils never seemed to bother me.
A year ago, I had a sore throat and head cold..and looked at my tonsils for first time ever. I had this little soybean sized white/yellowish pimple above one tonsil in the arch area.
It is now 10 months later and it's still there. No size change, no pain, no redness around it.
1. does it "look" like a cyst?
2. are there saliva ducts above the tonsils in this arch?
I had a tiny pebble size stone a week before that sore throat last year - come out of an infected saliva duct under my tongue. That's why I am wondering if that tissue above the tonsil is salivary?
