Bump in throat help!

Posted , 1 user is following.

for the past month ive noticed this kind of swollen bump in the back of my throat. it's not the tonsil but behind it like behind the flaps. its only on one side. recently it has been effecting my ear and making it uncomfortable. however it isnt too painful just irritating and uncomfortable. my anxiety is very extreme so it makes me panic and expect the worst possible thing. is it throat cancer? hpv? or just a pretonilar abcess? i have had acid reflex that goes to my throat from my anxiety so that could be a factor. the picture isnt super clear sorry about that it goes down sometimes and other times swells up more. It's hard to see a doctor rn because of the covid-19. i just need a piece of mind if anyone has any advise or answers that would help a lot!image
