Customer Question

I have a bump on the back of my throat that is burning when anything touches it.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It just looks really red and a bump. I've had a tonsillectomy about 5 years ago for a cyst on my tonsil.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Health Professionals generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
