Two bumps in the back of throat Could this be

Patient

Q: Two bumps in the back of throat. Could this be throat cancer..?

Symptoms:  Itchy throat. Sometimes sore.
Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query and a clear picture.

The two bumps at the back of the throat are called granular pharyngitis ans is just a over-reaction to the infection and not a cancer at all, nor it develops into cancer.
Hence do not be worried about cancer at all.
You ENT after examination will advise you appropriate medicines.

Hope this helps you.
