I have one white lump around the tonsil area in my throat. It has been there a good few months now and the area is swollen. Is this cancer?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Cancer cannot be diagnosed by inspection only. To exclude tonsillar stone you have to perform lateral neck X-ray and show me it later on. I advise you to use a mouthwash and gargle your pharynx then expectorate it many times during the day for a week. Then if the white spot still exists you may have to undergo tonsillectomy. Then examine the tonsillar tissue histologically to detect its nature.
