ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Dx/DDx: Benign Lesion

History: 30 y/o male security forces member who first noticed this pink fleshy growth in the left tonsillar area about 3 weeks ago. It doesn't appear to be growing any larger and he doesn't complain about it being painful, but we would like to know if you can tell what it is and whether it is a benign growth that is okay to watch for the next 6 months while he is deployed or if it's something he needs to have removed sooner than 6 months from now.

Findings: elevated round pink area on the left tonsil appears to be approximately 4 mm in diameter

Ddx: oral lymphoepithelial cyst occluded tonsillar crypt accessory lymphoid tissue

No MeSH data available.


The elevated round pink area on the left tonsil appears to be approximately 4 mm in diameter.  My impression is that it could be an oral lymphoepithelial cyst or an occluded tonsillar crypt.  Both conditions are benign.  To answer the question, yes, it is okay to periodically observe for the next 6 months
