I've had on and off sore throats for the past few months and a slightly yellow/white tongue. I went to the dentist a month ago and they saw nothing wrong with my tongue. The last couple of days the throat pain has returned again but I have no other symptoms of cold/flu and feel otherwise perfectly fine.
Today, I noticed that on one side of where the tongue joins the mouth at the bottom of the palatoglossal arch in front of the tonsil there were lots of little sore lumps both on the arch and a bit on the tongue. They were especially painful when I touched them and even bled a little.
On the other side in the same place there is one larger rounded lump and a couple of smaller ones. They're all mostly colourless as pictured. I don't know whether these are new or have been there a long time as the tongue normally hides them.
I was wondering what they could be and whether I should go to the dentist to ask?
Any comments/thoughts are much appreciated,
