Tongue and throat
I am getting bumps at the base of my tongue once in a while... obstacle while swallowing. There's no pain as such. In two incidents while coughing there were stale food particles coming off from mouth. It goes off after a week time. And it comes back again after sometime. There's no exact frequency of these incidents.

This condition happens when you have particularly large crypts in your tonsils. Solution: LASER assisted Tonsillar Resurfacing Call me for an appointment
