Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..
I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..
As per your complain it seems in case if you have been having flu since 2 weeks along with sore throat
, the lump over the palate
seems to be due to either inflammation secondary to infection, formation of a small abscess
or can be a pyogenic granuloma
You need not to worry as nothing seems serious..
I would suggest you to do warm saline gargles atleast 2 to 3 times a day..
You can do steam inhalations..
Avoid spicy and hard foods and take a soft bland diet..
Take anti-inflammatory painkillers like Ibuprofen
Gargle with antiseptic mouthwash gargles...
The lump will resolve gradually in a week and in case of no improvement or if condition worsen consult an Otolaryngologist and get evaluated..
Hope this information helps..
Thanks and regards.
