what is causing my problem?

Im not sure what the medical name for the little piece of skin that hangs down in the back of your mouth is but that is what im refering to in this post. One night after drinking when I was 17, I know young but thats not the point, i noticed that the thing in the back of mt mouth had been bunrt if you will and there was a small bump on the side of it. It has remained there for 4 years now, I am 21. It stays the same size all the time until i get indigestion at night then it gets bigger, as the course of the day goes on it shrinks to its normal size. Does anyone know what is going on here and if this bump is related to acid reflux or to a totally different condition?

It is called a uvula. I would get it checked out by a doctor.
