What could be the reason for recurrent sore throat?

hi, I have a sore throat for over a week now. It s on and off like sometimes it goes away for a day and comes back. I am not sure what is causing this. i have no other symptoms and no coughing. When i looked in the mirror today i saw a red bump on the left side of throat. I think there were small little red bumps in the way back but i couldn t see there clearly. What could this be?

welcome to healthcaremagic

on analysis of the symptoms you seem to be suffering from a form of tonsillitis, hence get it evaluated by an ENT specialist
depending on the severity or occurence of symptoms you might be offered surgery or conservative therapy
