Hi Gupta,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,

This can be inflammation of the tonsil, sometimes there will be unequal enlargement of the tonsil. If you are not having much problem with it you can just forget it, if you are having fever associated then get the blood tests done to rule out other medical causes. Drink plenty of warm water, stop smoking and for few days do gargles with povidone iodine mouth wash.

Take care
