Brief Answer:
You are having lymphoid tissue mass in the back of throat which show slit .

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I have read your query , seen your picture and understand your concern.

In my opinion , you are having lymphoid tissue mass in the back of throat which show slit in between . It is seen in many individuals with repeated upper respiratory track infection .

Repeated ear aches and sore throats most probably because of smoke allergy from E cigs.

If I were your treating doctor , I would advice
stop using frequent E cigs ,
use regular antiseptic chlorhexidine Mouth Wash twice daily,
antihistamine at night &
Saline nasal rinse thrice daily .

You will get relief.

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Regards.
