Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Ok thank you

This looks like inflamed glands in the mucosa over there and does not seems to be anything of serious etiology. I would recommend you to give it some time like 2 to 3 weeks and if it does not improve then get it examined by a magnifying glass by your doctor. No associated symptom is reassuring.

Hope this helps.

Ok thank you for the time. I am comforted to hear it isn't immediately bad but I will monitor it. Is there any indication I should look for that will tell me to go in immediately. And I will leave a good review

Any sudden change or increase in size, redness and swelling should be looked for all the time.

Hope this helps.
