    bumps with indentation in throat. hx of tonsillectomy
    m1a1t1t1t posted:
    this is where my tonsils should be, though i never noticed these bumps before. was hard to get a good photo of these, but they seem to either be discolored/indented.

    was at the ENT less than a month ago for something unrelated and im not sure if she noticed these or not.

    I am a 23 year old smoker, could this be cancerous?
