Brief Answer:
Most probably you may be suffering from the chronic pharyngitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I have gone through your query; it suggest that most probably you may be suffering from the chronic pharyngitis.

In this condition I personally suggest to that you may go for throat swab culture and antibiotic sensitivity and take the antibiotic according to test result.

With this you also take ant acid, anti reflux medicine with hexidine mouth gargles.

Avoid cold drink, ice cream, cold water, smoking and drinking if you have.

Wish you good health

Hi, I have a mass attached to the skin between my tonsils and uvula . It is filled with clear liquid and doesn t hurt at all- I don t even have a sore throat . However it is getting larger and is noticeable when i swallow . It is about a cm long, but its more like a ball shape attached by a smaller piece of skin. I ve poked it with a toothbrush etc but cant pop it, and it doesn t hurt to touch. Two days ago i did have a massive migraine (possibly a result of a chronic sinus issue?) behind my eyes/in my temples, and this just appeared today. Is it something draining? Will it go away? should i get it looked at?
