Brief Answer: it is better to get it checked Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your query. It is surprising that you have a hard marble size mass on the back of your throat when you do not have tonsils or adenoids. In my view, it is better to get it checked by your local physician. We need to know if it is a kind of growth or infection. Treatment can be planned accordingly. Let me know if you have more queries. Regards,
