Reply to "Bump in back of throat"

Hey everyone, I went to my GP again, but didn't really get anywhere. He looked at my 'swollen' right tonsil, and he said in his opinion it isn't really swollen very much. He said it's a ".5 out of a 4", with 4 being extremely swollen. He didn't really seem to think the abscess behind my uvula was very unusual, and that the slightly swollen lymph node is probably from a small infection. He mentioned Waldeyer's Ring again, and said that's the area where this is all taking place. He said if it was cancer or something, my tonsils would be acting up and they'd be really swollen. Then he told me I probably have anxiety because he doesn't think this is very serious at all.

I don't know if I should get a second opinion or what. It costs me $70 every time I have to go see the doctor, and he is positive I don't have anything serious in the first place (which I certainly hope is correct). Bah..
