In brief: Includes the uvula,
The little dew drop hanging, and then stertching to the front draping fold of the tonsil.
If you look, you may see a mass, and it can bleed, it can block breathing or make swallowing difficult. The hard palate is bony, and forms the roof of your mouth, the soft is behind your teeth. The hard palate can have a big bump called a torus palatinus - never cancer.
