White patches BEHIND tonsils going down throat...

Hi. For the last two months I noticed a white patch with a red border behind my tonsil going down my throat. It cannot be scraped off. I have this on both sides but it is more prominent and white on my left side. It is not to be confused with a tonsil stone as it is not on the tonsil. What could this be? I am going to an ent next week but just would like to get an idea for my own piece of mind.

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response
If you do not have pain, it cannot be the aphthous ulcer, can be keratosis until examined thoroughly. Do betadine gargles (1:1 dilution) 3-4 times/day after food and drink plenty of warm water.
