Child having throat pain. Growth in the bottom side of throat below voice cord. Reason?

Dr., My son aged 8 years has been complaining of throat pain for the past few days. We thought it was due to usual throat infection and we made him gurgle salt water everyday. But now when we looked into his mouth, we saw extra growth of i inch long projecting like a stalk from the bottom side of throat, just below the voice chord. Please explain.
