Abscess on uvula

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on uvula


Avatar n tn i've had a swollen/enlarged uvula on and off (mostly on) for about 2 weeks now, which is about the same time i've been sick with a cold. The uvula and the tissue around seem to be a bit red. i havnt did much to take care of it, thinkin it would subside by itself. i feel no pain and can breathe quite easily, it's just annoying! whats going on?
Avatar m tn For the past 2 months I've been freaking out after reading about the link between high-risk HPV and Oral/Throat Cancer and this has been intensified by finding small, painless bumps under and on the far backside of my tongue and on the back of my uvula, along with losing my voice all in the past week. My bite is also now crooked, which could be from my lack of wearing a retainer after braces removal, the months of uvula swelling, or the fact that i grind my teeth when sleeping.
Avatar f tn I had an vallecular abscess on my lingual tonsil drained 1/17 in an emergency procedure. they told me it was in a rare location and that my vocal chords were hemorraged in surgery, so that i would be sore a while. there were loculations in abscess. "the tonsils did show exudate tonsilitis biltaterally but no evidence of obvious abscess.
Avatar f tn This bump could be caused by a salivary gland or it could be caused by a scratch on the uvula while eating something that had a sharp edge. If you have sore throat and the pain and swelling is worse on one side than the other it could possibly be a peritonsilar abscess .A peritonsillar abscess can cause the infection to become deep and cause airway problems. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn I had noticed about 4 years ago I had a small abscess on my vaginal wall, I never thought too much of it since I thought it was a big skin tag. Then I had a pap, and gave birth to my daughter, and no doctor ever made mention of it. Then today, while shaving down there, and I spread my lips open a bit, I noticed I had it on the other side of the wall as well. They are about just under a cm each, and are raised. At first I thought maybe it was Bartholins Gland abscesses, but they arent firm.
Avatar n tn After 5 days of treatment my tonsils and uvula are severely swollen with a some white specs on the tonsils. The pain has intensified on my right side. I can see the right side has a reddish swelling that starts from the puffy gum and proceeds up along the wall of my mouth near the back and appears to be pushing on my right tonsil. I also noticed it stems up towards the roof of my mouth a little. It hurts when touched and feels softer than the other side of my mouth.
Avatar f tn for the last few months i've been suffering from recurrent pimples on my butt... they come only one at a time and usually after the previous one has almost completely resolved... they discharge pus and blood if they burst... and they scar... and while they're there they are extremely painful! sitting is torture! i never really paid much attention to them and i guess this began sometime at the end of last year...
Avatar n tn Can a tooth be abscessed without any gum swelling, and cause this swelling in my throat? A few years ago I had an abscess on the bottom left wisdom tooth. After swelling went down, the dentist did surgery to build up the bone.
Avatar n tn I had seen lots of doctors and they couldn’t figure it out. This was a growth seemingly inside of the palatoglossal arch, above my right tonsil (NOT on my tonsil). It was completely covered by plain old soft palate tissue. It was very hard and mimicked the shape of the palatoglossal arch. A couple of weeks ago I went to see a specialist at the UW Hospital, there he told me that I likely had an abscess or cancer, and scheduled surgery. During my per-op screening today, a CT scan was taken.
Avatar n tn Pain in my throat and its swollen the little strecthed out things that look like a cave entrance that part of the throat is red (the side parts next to the Uvula) Anyway today I now have a wierd bad taste in my mouth and well I have gone to the doctors three times, the first one said it was allergies and had me go home take flonase and claritin, the second one told me it was tonsilitis and gave me the 2pak antibiotic, and the third time i went back to her telling her the 2pak didnt cure me, s
Avatar f tn Hi guys, thought I would post this on this side of the forum and see if any of you could respond that didnt on the other side. I am doing research into Fatigue and Hepatitis C, I need your input: 1. Is fatigue your worst symptom. 2. What do you use or take to help with the fatigue. 3. What is your experience with fatigue before treatment. 4. As you know there arent many studies done that supply us with a remedy for fatigue, except the study done on Ondansatron by Piche et al in 2005.
Avatar m tn Wash off your hands with soap. The blood vessels on one side of the nose swell up with blood, on purpose, to close off that side of the nose to air. This gives the cilia in the closed nostril a chance to clean out all the pollution and mucus. When it’s clean, it opens up and the other side is closed to repeat the process. The things that swell up to close your nostrils are called turbinates. Keep this in mind when you are blowing your nose.
