I had a lump that grew on my tonsil about 5 years ago. I had this removed (along with my tonsil) and a biospy done which came back ok.
Following the tonsillectomy I was admitted back into hospital twice because of haemoraging and eventually they stiched the area.
The reason for my post is that now I have the same pain as I felt when I had the lump and its on the same side. I am trying to see if I can see anything there but can't. My GP has said it was a throat infection and prescribed antibiotics which have done nothing, throat sweets do not help either and I know its not a sore throat as it is only on one side.
I am having to take pain killers as it hurts to swallow (on one side, like there is an obstruction) and has also started to affect my speech a little.
Is it possible that it is an infection of the scar tissue? Or should I press my GP to refer me due to my history?
P.S I was never informed of what it was before just told it was all ok and not to worry.
