Hi, please do not worry as the symptoms you have stated are not indicative of cancer per say. It seems like you have an infection or allergic throat and gargling with hexidine and anti-allergics should solve the problem. As far as the skin coloured thing lump is concerned, this seems like a tonsillar hypertrophy and lymphnode enlargement because of that. You need not take any thing for that unless you have symptoms of throat infection. Regards
