I actually went to the doctor two days ago for unrelated food poisoning and he didn't notice it when he looked into my mouth. < edited >
Thanks very much
First of all, you should really get that checked by a medical professional.
Any advice thereafter is free game.
Where on the soft palate is this projection?
Could be an infected sebaceous gland perhaps?
or an overactive sebaceous sac? does that exist?
