You have pain in the throat more on the left side for the last 4 years. For the the last 6 months you get a painful swelling in the left side of the Roof of the mouth which immediately subsides before consulting a doctor. This may be probably due to the collection of lymphocytes usually due to associated infection (Bacterial or Viral) near by. A Throat swab for grams stain + culture and sensitivity may be helpful. Oral hygiene is important. Along with ENT Consult a Dentist also.
