Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
I have seen the pictures. It seems to be a hypertrophy of posterior pharyngeal bands which is usually caused by continuous post nasal drip.
Please tell me do you have any history of frequent nasal or throat infection?
Any history of smoking or tobacco use?
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards
