Avatar m tn If present it could also be Leukoplakia, which is a condition where patches of keratosis appear as adherent white patches on the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and throat. It is a potentially pre-cancerous disease of the mouth and throat. A biopsy may help to diagnose this condition. The cause of leukoplakia is unknown, but tobacco, whether smoked, dipped or chewed, is considered to be the main culprit in its development. Treatment is with laser or cryotherapy.
Avatar f tn I have feeling that I need to swallow, like I have peice of food in throat, that come and goes. A bad taste in my mouth.

Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The swelling and discomfort could be due to a throat infection. It's unlikely to be due to throat cancer. White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which your son had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help.

Avatar n tn painful throat for 9 years, looks like white patches and red streaks in throat. CBC, thyroid, mono test, throat scan normal, what can it be?
Avatar n tn I have looked on the internet because I have been having some changes to my mouth and throat. The back of my mouth has developed two white patches, one on each side, one larger than the other. I also have what looks like a red circular puffy bump on the side with the larger white patch. The very back part of my throat the deepest part I can see looks like it has small red and white bumps. It also has a brownish yellow coating in places.
Avatar f tn You are saying that you had a bacterial throat infection back in December? Tonsilitis? Did you take antibiotics? White spots on your throat are not indicative of throat cancer.

1893993 tn?1321311793 Okay the problem started in January 2011 when I moved in with my grandma Almost immediately after I moved in I my throat began to hurt so badly it was hard to swallow and everything. Eventually after a week or two that went away but it came back sometimes, usually when I got colds. Also around that time I had recently gotten over a yeast infection I had no clue about and I am sexually active so I have been giving/given oral sex without knowing of the yeast infection.
Avatar f tn It feels like something is in the back of my throat. when i looked I have white spots inbedded in the back. What could that be?
Avatar m tn My tonsils are swollen and it appears to be white patches in the very back of the throat behind the tonsils. My doctor diagnosed me with allergic rhinitis and my ENT diagnosed me with acid reflux. I am currently taking 10mg 2x per day of Omeprazole. The ENT stated that it would take up to 3 months of taking the medication to see any change in the throat. Let me give you a history that is not related to acid reflux so you can better understand my anxiety.
Avatar n tn I have had Strep a few times before so I looked at the back of my throat and found the white spots, but they were more in patches than spots. I called the doctor to see if she could do the strep test so I could find out earlier if I had it to start the treatment and whatnot. by the middle of the day my throat was no longer sore (still swollen though) and the white patches went away.
Avatar n tn The back of my throat is looking pretty gross as well, with whitish patches, and a mucuosy film over my uvula. I've been feeling sick for the past few weeks on and off. I had a sinus infection and took anti-biotics, felt better, and now seem to have a cold or flu. I was thinking it might be strep throat or mono, but my throat doesn't hurt, and i don't have a fever. Now I'm worried it might be oral cancer caused by HPV (I have a small white bump under my tongue).
Avatar n tn Four days ago I had surgery under general anesthesia. Since then my throat has been very sore and 'raw'. I thought it was from being intubated but today I noticed white patches in the back of my throat. What is the cause?
503418 tn?1231098736 It's also possible to develop patches on the back of the throat from a virus. Looking in my kids' mouths was the first thing I did when they got a sore throat. If I saw patches, I took them in. A couple times it turned out to be a virus that ran its course. Huh, what a nasty trick. Don't forget some white patches can be thrush.
