Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding pinkish small growth on tonsil of right side giving much discomfort t swallowing your own saliva. This development is sudden and develop in overnight.

By thinking about your complaints it appears as either one of the follicle of your tonsil gets infected and is bulging out as a fleshy growth or it may be polyp.

To treat it you should take conservative treatment first like-

(a) Antibiotic.

(b) Analgesic & anti inflammatory.

(c) Decongestant & mucolytic.

I hpe this conservative treatment will help you but even after this if your problem persists than consultation with ENT specialist will be necessary for examination and further treatment.
