Ball like tissue present behind throat, red stringy tissue attached to it. Cause of concern?

Hi! I have felt this ball like tissue on occasion in the back of my throat and looked at my throat the last time I felt this and discovered a red string like tissue with a ball on the end in the back of my throat. The ball part was touching my tongue . Just wondering what this could be and if it s serious? Thanks so much!
