Question can some1 pls ease my worry and tell me if this is part of the throat anatomy?? TIA

I have a platelike sort of flappy part in the back of my throat and i didnt notice it before when i have felt back there to regurgitate when i had small case of food poisoing. Now that i have had swallowing difficulties and sinus problems, and a lymphnode flare up , i felt back there pretty far and foudn this plate like flap in the back of my throat , its movable, right behind the tongue. Is this thing normal , could it be flared and thats why i didnt feel it before? It kind of scares me, can someone put me at ease and tell me what the hell it is ? epiglottis? softplate? what ?? thanks in advance
