Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The pictures show three things (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The bumps on the back of your tongue which are circumvallate papillae. Then, there are slightly enlarged tonsils on either side of the throat. There are granulations on the posterior pharyngeal wall. These may be present in acute pharyngitis.
