Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
im not asking for a diagnosis. Please answer my original question.
I don't need the diagnosis. I just want to know your symptoms before your doctor performed the biopsy. Any medications?
please opt out. we are going no where.
Any type of biopsy can have a significant amount of pain. Unfortunately, the mouth is subject to constant trauma from swallowing and drinking so it takes much longer to heal. In addition, like biopsies anywhere else on the body, there is an inflammatory response that produces phlegm to help fight any possible infections, as well as help the body heal. It is just more noticeable in the mouth due to the location. Most skin biopsies, for example, will take about 5-10 days to heal. A tonsil biopsy can take about 15 - 20 days to heal due to the constant trauma from food. You can try to eat softer food to avoid further trauma. Ultimately, you symptoms are normal.

so phlem in the tonsil area, where I have to spit it out, it is white, thick, sticky is normal?
Phlegm is your natural body response to fighting off any infection or inflammation. White is usually indicative of inflammation and not infection. Therefore, you body is responding to the recent biopsy. I would call your surgeon just to make sure that he is not concerned.
