Bump near the tonsils after having tonsillitis. Mucous cyst? Family history of cancer

Hello, a few months ago I had a bad case of tonsillitis . I recovered without any antibiotics . However around that time I noticed a small bump close to my right tonsil. It is flesh-coloured and not painful, but certainly feels bothersome. I had some dental work done in the past few weeks, and the dentists said the growth was a mucous cyst , nothing to be worried about, and that it would go away on its own. It s now been a few months and it hasn t gone away nor grown any bigger. I am an occasional smoker and drinker, but by no means a heavy user. I am a 23 year old male with no family history of cancer . Please let me know if what I ve got warrants any further attention.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The best way to deal with any 'growth' is to get it removed and analysed (excision biopsy).
Everything else is guess work and may be hazardous.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
