    Bump on uvula
    An_254133 posted:
    About a week ago I noticed a bump about the size of a pencil eraser on my uvula. It does not hurt ad is not getting any bigger or smaller. I went to a walk in clinic and they seemed to not know what is was and said it could be a papilloma. I made an appointment with an ENT but it still has me a bit worried. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thank you.

    I have a similar issue just to the right of my uvula. Bump about the size of a pencil eraser and no pain associated with it. I've had my bump for several months now and have also made an appointment for an ENT.

    I will post another reply to you if I hear back from anyone with any answers and will also post a reply after my Dr. appointment with results. If you have heard anything, please share what you have been told. I hope we both receive good information.
