Few weeks ago, I've noticed the left side of my back throat is swollen.
Right now it hurts when I swallow.
When I touch the swollen part, it feels hard; almost as a bone.
I don't feel sick at all.
Does anybody know what it is, or have a similar condition?

I took a picture and circled the swollen part in yellow:
