The answer your looking for is the Tonsils, which are small masses of lymphoid tissue positioned around the pharynx (which is the tube or cavity, with its surrounding membrane and muscles,that connects the mouth and nasal passages with the esophagus)

*** Go to a mirror and open your mouth up wide. You will see the uvula (the dangling thing at the back of your throat). Behind the uvula are your tonsils that stick out kinda from the left and right sides of your throat like small bulges ...

*** Hope I helped XD
