for about a week like 3 years ago i had a real severe case of strep and i didn't get any treatment for about a month then noticed i had a little cluster of bumps in between my uvulae and my tonsils. its not on my tonsils or uvulae its just right in the corner of my mouth. i thought i got bit by a spider so i just brushed it off. it doesn't hurt or anything its just getting annoying because it is still there. it doesn't get any bigger unless my tonsils start swelling up. I have had strep throat alot ever since i was a kid and now i just get swollen tonsils alot. its smooth in feeling and its not that big. it has never caused me trouble with eating or ever broken open and bled they just always are there and was wondering what it is and if there is anything i can do to get rid of them. im almost done with college as a medical assistant and i've asked alot of doctors at the hospitals when i have had trouble with my tonsils and they say its nothing serious.i dont' have insurance so i just go through the hospital. i forgot to say that its not that large and you can barely notice it but i know it is something. can somebody give me an idea what it can be i am perfectly healthy no fever i havn't gotten sick besides swollen tonsils for about two years and strep has came out negative the past 3 times i went to the hospital. thank you for your time and try to reply soon thank you again.
