Brief Answer: Are you sure about large epiglottis? Detailed Answer: Hi Sir, I have gone through your query and medical history. Are you sure about large epiglottis? Because large epiglottis may be a life threatening condition and mostly, you own cant diagnose large epiglottis; for this you may required either direct or indirect laryngoscopy. Probably you may be suffering from the large uvula because it may hang loose in your throat with flapping during the talk or swallow. Please send your image or doctors note for better help if you have. Wish you good health
