White spot behind tonsil on back of throat
For the past 6 months I`ve had this white speck in the back of my mouth. 4 months ago I used 2 q-tip swabs and it came out. Now it is back again but I cant get it out this time. Even gargled with hot salt water. Also my right tonsil is swollen now. with a white patch on it.
I recommend an expert evaluation and possibly biopsy if needed.
