What is the white sore in the back of my mouth? It looks like a canker sore, but it's further back than I have ever seen before. It's off to the left side of my mouth, beyond my teeth on my throat.

This could still be a canker sore. If that is the only place it is sore, and you dont' have a fever, this is probably the case. Try gargling with salt water a few times tonight and see if that helps. If you do have a fever, you might want to be tested for strep throat.
