what is the "skin tag" on my soft palate, same color as gum, relatively round and smooth, near tonsil, feels like there's something stuck in my throat?

Uvula: That is your uvula.

Skin tag: If it's along the back border of your soft palate and located exactly in the middle it's a normal structure called the Uvula. If located elsewhere, if it changes shape, size color, see an ENT specialist or a specialist Oral Surgeon. Same advice if "something stuck" does not begin to ease off in 48 hours.
