Small pink fleshy growth on right tonsil, discomfort on swallowing, feels like something stuck in throat. Cure?

I have a small, pink, fleshy looking growth on my right tonsil . I noticed it about 2 days ago. I feel no pain from it, just some discomfort when swallowing and a constant feeling that I have something stuck in my throat . Before I noticed the growth on my tonsil I felt like I was starting to have symptoms of a cold . What could this lump be?

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hello from Health care Magic,

I would like to say that it is not possible to comment without a physical examination of your throat. But going by your symptoms the many possibilities could be a Benign lesion of tonsil like a papilloma or cyst of tonsil. Papillomas are classically seen as fleshy, pink, sessile or granular masses arising from the tonsils. I suggest you see an ENT Specialist as soon as possible to put your mind at rest.

thanks for your query.

I think fleshy growth on tonsil suggest two possibilities, like either a inflammatory granulation or a malignant growth.

If its a painful and have difficulty while swallowing then more towards inflammation.

If your age is above 45 yrs, you have addictions like smoking and alcohol or tobacco, irregular surface and having slough and induration then second possibility could be ruled out.

Better for you to consult ENT specialist and examine. I think if Its from 2 days only more possibility of inflammatory.

Meanwhile take any anti inflammatory like tab Emanzen DP to resolve the inflammation.

Many thanks, take care.
