These are probably: just extensive expansions of the tonsillar organs themselves. If they are not causing trouble (swallowing, breathing, etc.) they are of no concern. Certainly seeing them would help to define them more clearly so you will need to see a health care professional locally to accomplish this. Make an appointment for reassurance soon.
