I had a diagnostic left tonsillectomy to confirm primary back in late September, it healed and before rads started in October, I noticed this white tiny nodule on the bed. It's always been there, I looked today and it either hasn't changed or looks a little smaller. 3 weeks ago, I mentioned it to my RO and he said it's either scar tissue or the area is being treated with the most concentrated dose of rad so he wasn't concerned.
I've heard of larger white flat scabs that fall off, part of the normal tonsillectomy healing process, but it's been a few months now and I've never heard or googled anyone having a white nodule as scar tissue. I don't see my RO again until Jan 13. I have no appts with my ENT, and frankly I'm not sure they can do anything because I have completed the standard treatment for HNSCC.
