Dentist Dr. Sushil Babu's  Response
first of all there may be quite a few conditions which may mimic the symptoms given by u,,,,we would like a further medical history like
ur age
do u smoke
any drug abuse like chewing tobacco
previous condition
how long is these bumps r frm
any othr symptoms u may have
most commonly this may be a case of tonsillitis
which may give rise to such problems
or it may be as serious as initial stage of oral cancer
dont worry n consult a dentist as soon as possible
dont try any self medications
take salt water gargles three to four times daily if tht helps itis probably tonsillitis
in any case see a dentist
any problems can contact me here with a proper history
