Hello and welcome to HCM,
There are so many normal things in our body such as the tonsils or the epiglottis or the trubinates which may become big in some conditions and appear abnormal.
Regarding your case although this may be one of those conditions, it is always advisable to undergo a simple out patient procedure called the endoscopy of the throat to rule out any other ominous lesions.
Also try not to feel any thing in the throat as it may just aggravate your problem and worry
hope this helps
