I have had a bad cold along with an ear infection and extremely sore throat for the past week or so. During that time I felt a small bump appear on my throat. At first, I thought this was acne as it felt like a pimple but forming underneath the top layer of skin so no head was visible. However, now it has grown to about the size of the pads of one of my fingers and is relatively painless. Any idea what this could be? Should I wait for my illness to subside and see if it goes away on its own or get it checked right away?
