Lump in the back of the throat, white dot on the tonsil. Due to swallowing semen?

A few weeks ago I felt a lump in the back of my throat whenever I swallowed. I found a white knot on my tonsil. I was able to scrape it off and it just looked like build up of food particles or plaque or something. It didn't make sense because I brush my teeth everyday, but I didn't worry too much about it. It hadn't come back until today. I swallowed semen yesterday and now today it's all of a sudden back. Could that have anythig to do with it? Why would swallowing semen cause it to build up but not any other drink or food? And what is causing it to stick and build up?

Hello dear,

The symptoms mentioned in your post suggests that you might be having Acute Tonsillitis.

Management consists of:
1. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain.
2. Analgesics like paracetamol
3. Antibiotics depending upon culture & sensitivity reports to remove the causative organism.
4. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.

If symptoms still will be better to consult an ENT specialist.
Meanwhile...avoid taking cold food & drinks, maintain adequate hydration & take soft, non-spicy foods.

Wish you good health & a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
