  • Go see an ENT. It may be a popiloma on your uvula. I had that. They cut it off in 1 minute and I was out of there. THey said its like a viral wort in your throat and they are not cancerous. I paniced when i swall a little ball on my uvula. The ENT said it was nothing. They even did a biopsy on it and it came back negative.
