Thank you for your query.

1. If you can upload a close up image, it will help.

2. It may be a normal structure, such as a torus palatinus. There is a large differential of rare conditions leading to such a lump.

3. Get a videolaryngoscopy done. Upload the images/video.

4. Treatment will depend upon the examination findings.

I hope that i have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
