Brief Answer:
Swelling soft palate

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information.
I have seen your report. It is absolutely normal. There is sinusitis as per the report. You might be having some nasal polyp that is pushing the soft palate down and hence you might feel a swelling. My advise is you should get an endoscopic examination done for the nose and throat.
Any further queries are always welcome.
I hope my advise helps you.
Thanks and regards

Hi
That is a very small mucosal cyst. Don't touch it again and again as it can get infected.
Just ignore and relax.
if it is bothering you than you can get it excised.
