Thanks for posting your query.
Have you asked your ENT surgeon from where he is going to take biopsy?
There is high chances of pharyngitis and tonsillitis.
If your conditions is partially treated with levofloxacin then you should take beta lactamase antibiotics with levofloxacin with anti inflammatory medication for faster relief.
You should also perform gargles three times in a day , lukewarm water with pinch of salt.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
