Home Throat Examination

Examination of the throat

This includes a thorough examination of the oral cavity.

Inspection

Ask the patient to remove dentures, and examine their mouth systemically (use a bright torch): tongue, hard and soft palate, tonsillar fossa, gingivolabial/gingivobuccal sulci, the floor of mouth/undersurface of the tongue as follows:

  • Examine the mouth and note the condition of the tongue.
  • Examine back of tongue and tonsils (press down on the tongue with a tongue depressor).
  • Palpate the base of the tongue (look for tumours that may not be easily visible).
  • Inspect the uvula and soft palate.
  • Inspect the hard palate (ask the patient to tip their head backwards, until the whole hard palate is visible).
  • Examine the buccal area and the gingivolabial (gingivobuccal) sulcus (the space between cheek and gums).
  • Examine the floor of the mouth, check for submandibular duct stones or masses (ask the patient to stick their tongue out).
  • Examine the nasopharynx and larynx with a mirror or flexible fibreoptic nasendoscope.
