Sore throat, hurts while swallowing. Have small cluster of dark spots on cheeks side. Serious?

My throat starting being sore a few days ago. It onset very rapidly during a few hours in the evening. Over the past few days, it is sore and hurts to swallow in the morning and at night, but is completely fine for the most part throughout the day. This morning when I was looking inside my mouth, I noticed a small cluster of dark spots on the inside of my left cheek as well as some swelling in the same area. Is this serious?

Hello

It does not look serious but i would still like you to meet your ent doctor to have a look at what it is , or you can upload a pic of the spots and i would be in a better position to help you
Meanwhile you can start gargling with hexidine mouth wash 3-4 times a day and avoid hot and spicy food.
Thanks
