Question: I have found a skin tag type of thing in my throat on the left hand side next to the left tonsil. It isnt causing any pain and is the same pink colour as tonsils etc. What could it be? Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Mucosal tag

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It is probably a mucosal tag which is an incidental finding but it would be better to comment once i get to see. Please send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
