thanks for your query.

Flesh coloured lump above tonsil suggest two possibilities either infective granulations or malignant mass.

Better to consult ENT specialist and examined.

I think better to go for punch biopsy of it and treat accordingly.

You dont have to worry as now a days we have so many options and treatment modalities for it.

Thanks, take care.
