My daughter is 3 and a few weeks ago i was brushing her teeth and noticed a huge mass in her throat where her tonsil would be. I took her to the doctor and they checked for strep and both tests came back negative. So i had a follow up a week later and they checked her blood and all that was also fine. The doctor said all her lymph nodes are fine and the blood counts were all okay that we could watch it and see what happens. I am going to take her to an e.n.t. and get it checked but i am wondering if anyone would maybe know what it could be?
She has never said that it hurts. She has always been one to throw up alot, when ever she gets upset she will vomit so much and so forcefully like an adult would, She chokes alot the mass is from where the tonsil is and it reaches all the way to her uvula.
If anyone knows what it would be please let me know!!!
thank you

  • What color is the mass? Pink like the inside of her mouth? What did the doctor think it was?? Seems strange that they would have no idea.I once had a ball of food stuck where you are describing it sounds like. Though it sounds as though this is a skin mass.
