It is a reality of nature that there is so much variation in human anatomy, including of the mouth and throat, that it is nearly impossible for any single image to truly represent "normal." It is equally true that different mouth and throat maladies can look very similar, even to experienced physicians. This is why doctors use scientific tests to confirm their diagnosis rather than relying on a visual exam alone. They know that even they can be fooled by nature.
It is also why we strongly suggest that you examine the throat at a time when you know there is no disease present, so that you will have a clear picture of what is "normal" for them. This is critical when you are later comparing what you see in their throats to the symptoms and indications illustrated below.
In any case, you should never attempt a diagnosis based on your examination, but rather observe and report what you see to your physician. Your observations will tell them whether or not a professional visit is called for.
