Oral Cancer

Bumps at the Back of Oropharynx

02/18/2010

Question:

for about a month now, ive noticed bumps of various sizes at the back of my oropharnx. Also I have a sore/burning sensation at the back of my throat and I have a small white patch about a couple of millimeters in size at the soft part on the roof of my mouth. I went to the dentist and they said there was nothing they could see to worry about, but this is bugging me im not in any pain and I don`t have difficulty in swallowing. could you give me any advice.

Answer:

Unfortunately it is not possible to make a diagnosis based upon your description or this particular forum. If your condition is of concern, it is best to have this evaluated by a specialist such as an otolaryngologist (ear, nose, throat physician).
