Its only on this side and i am currently taking omrepzole 20mg a day as well

That is most likely your palatine tonsils.

These are normal structures that help fight infection etc and it is possible that this one is a bit enlarged as something irritated it.

So.  What to do?

No treatment is needed as this is a normal structure doing its normal tasks.

Of course, if you are still worried then the best thing to do would be to have a DDS take a look in person.

Does this make sense to you?
