Brief Answer:
Just a blood vessel. Not a cause for concern.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I have checked the attached image. Let me assure you that it is not a cut mark but a small blood vessel on your tonsil. It is not a cause for concern. It is independent of smoking. However, the increase in size of the tonsils could be related to smoking and I would urge you to stop smoking if possible.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
