Soft Palatal swelling

A 52 y/o male presented with a lump on the posterior/lateral junction of the hard and soft palate, present for many years at least 20 years. The swelling did not bother him until a few months ago when it suddenly started to grow and cause some discomfort and speech impairment. He also noticed that the swelling developed an area of surface ulceration. The surface ulceration and discomfort prompted him to seek care. Please give your views. MRI attached, done somewhere else.
