So, for the past just about 9 months I have been getting odd bumps on the back of my throat. They look like cauliflower/pimples that you just want to pop. Everytime I had gone to the doctor, these bumps were gone. I will get them for about a week then they will go away, once or twice a month. My throat never hurts, it just gets irritated. I can feel them when I swallow. I finally went to the doctor while they were there and she said she really had no idea what it was. She took a swab, and nothing came back positive. It also gives me a terrible taste in the back of my mouth. I do not have any sexually transmitted diseases. Does anyone know what this could be????????????????

  • Hi LisaTry looking up tonsiloths. Not 100% sure of the spelling though.I too get what look like white growths, these occur on my tonsils. My doctor just laughed when I showed them to him and he said there was nothing to worry about. On one side they don't bother me at all and disappear after a couple of weeks but on the other side I can always feel them when they are there and I end up trying to poke them off but it's not easy trying to poke things without wretching.Hopefully you've got the same as me and it's nothing to worry about. I must have had them for about 3 months now, on and off, and they don't seem to be going away.
