Post nasal drip, catarrh, abnormal throat sensation, snoring, feeling a lump

All of these symptoms can be caused by having a long, thick or just unusual uvula - the hanging down structure in the back of the throat.

Here's a picture of a very thick and forward pointing uvula that was driving the patient mad as it was constantly being felt at the back of her mouth. She couldn't stop rubbing her tongue against it. So I injected local anaesthetic above it, and vapourised it away in about 10 minutes, see second picture. Immediately the sensation had gone, she will be reviewed in

4 weeks for the final result.
