Hi everyone, I’ve had this white spot next to my uvula for at least 3 months now. It doesn’t hurt to touch and hasn’t changed in size since I first noticed it.
I’ve been to the doctors and dentist and neither seem too concerned although my dentist said he’d try and refer me to get it checked properly just incase. Due to the location of the spot he said I may need my doctor to refer me as it could be classed as a throat issue. I’m just wondering if anyone has seen anything similar and how likely it is that it’s something sinister.

It does not appear sinister, but for an accurate diagnoses, a biopsy might need to be taken. Due to the positioning of the lesion, the best option would be to see an ENT specialist.
