I posted a few weeks ago thinking I had tonsillitis (tonsils previously taken out) and I subsequently went to the doctors and got antibiotics. It never really cleared up but when I took my son to doctors this week asked doctor to look in my throat as still sore but not Ill. She said there's nothing I can do as its just because I'm run down. It's very sore and I think it's getting worse. I'm worried it might be cancer something serious. Am I being a hypochondriac?

It's difficult to see clearly on the picture . Could be thrush ? But if you have a persistent sore throat you must go back to the GP . You may need a referral to ENT if there is no clear reason especially if it is constantly sore throughout day. Any allergic symptoms- I used to get a sore throat when I had allergies.

It does look a bit like thrush. Your tongue looks white coated too. Probably from being run down and on antibiotics too.

Worth getting it checked properly though. In the meantime, you could ask a pharmacist their opinion. Perhaps it's worth trying over-the-counter oral anti fungal treatment to see if your throat improves.

Thank you. It's less the White I'm worried about but more the lumps?
