Blocked throat sensation, anxiety, swelling. Had tonsils removed. On liquids. Help?

I feel like I have something stuck on my throat , more specifically my right side around my tongue area. I have had my tonsils removed a few years ago and it helped briefly until the swelling went down. I have tried to feel around and found what appears to be a, I would say, oval shaped flap or growth or something next to my tongue in that region. I have had several scares where I feel like something is there and I have to throw up constantly because of this. It gives me great anxiety when I feel it and was also limited everything from my drinking of liquids to my eating as well. The only thing that seems to help is when my mind is completely occupied with something else. What do you think it could be?
