Common Questions and Answers about I have a lump above my adams apple


Hi, about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> month ago or so I noticed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> small little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on the front of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> neck on the upper part of my neck above the adams apple. It wasn't so noticeable that you could see it protruding from my neck or anything. I could really only feel it when I stiffened my neck muscles and felt it or lifted up my head and stiffened up my neck muscles.
When tilt my head back it really shows when I swallow. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> throat is sore and I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve some trouble swallowing food. I get hot, then cold. Dry skin, I really don't feel like myself. my arm and fingers get numb and tingles. I can't sleep on my back anymore. Hard to breathe. I'm 41 years old and terrified. What's wrong with me?
I have developed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on the left side of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple, even with it (not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove or below). The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> is solid and i can move it a little bit. my throat is not sore, doesnt hurt when i swallow, doesnt hurt if I touch around it, only if I touch the lump. Then it hurts very much. I developed this same lump about 6 months ago and the doctor dismissed it as stress/job related. It did go away a few days later. any ideas as to what causes this or what it could be?
I don't quite know how i came across this, i guess i was rubbing my neck and playing about with it (whilst i wait for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> GP appointment) anyway, just underneath <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple i pulled the skin and felt what seems to be 2 - 3 inch long mass of tissue ( i don't think its a muscle ) now i heard GERD can cause cancer.. possible?
I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> low fever, I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve been very tired and this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> is just sitting there. It is about quarter size and there is also some swelling starting where the lump is and goes up the side of my neck but the lump is very promanent. What the heck could this be? I do not have a sore throat or anything like that. This might sound weird but has anyone ever been to a movie and tried to hold back from crying and you have this funny feeling lump in your throat that is almost painful?
I was randomly feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove where <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> throat begins, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple and I felt a little bump/cyst (?). It's on the left side of my face only and it feels weird when I touch it. I can sort of move it around, but only a little bit. It feels hard and I'd compare the feeling of it to that of a small marble (the smallest marble), or maybe a bb or even a pellet. I'm concerned what it may be. any help would be greatly appreciated.
Ive recently been helping people that have taken water damage salvage belongings, do heavy lifting and demolition work (sheet rock/wood floor removal) since Hurricane Sandy hit the NY/NJ area. Here is a time line of the work I performed in Staten Island, NY. *10/29- Hurricane Sandy hit. *11/3- worked on 5 houses, moving damaged furniture from water logged basements. *11/11- full gutting of a home (sheetrock, plumbing, and basement) 7 hrs. *11/25- removal of a solid wood floor from a home. 8 hrs.
Over the last week I have had a feeling of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> throat on the left side in the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> addams <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple and just below <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> jaw. There appears to be ever so slight swelling on the left side... But my lymph nodes don't feel swollen anywhere else and the appears to a slight bulge in the area of concern on my neck. It doesn't hurt to swallow. I don't have a fever or sore throat, or changes in weight or appetite. I just have this lump feeling. I am otherwise in good health.
I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> neck for 7 years. I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve buried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> head about it till now afraid of what it may be. The lump is non painfull and about the size of a marble. It is slightly visible and protrudes maybe a tenth of an inch from neck. it has grown very slightly in the seven years. The lump is hard and mobile under skin. it feels like its attached to the skin underneath. the skin over it is normal colored. it is located directly in the middle front of neck just beneath my adams apple.
Often when I cough I can feel something almost "pop out" of my neck on my left side right next to my esophagus, it causes quite a bit of pain. The only way for my to relieve the pain is for me to press on the protruding lump, if this is my thyroid protruding why is it doing so and is it a concern?
i h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> swolen lymph node <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> lil <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple and i first noticed it about 6 months ago...i feel it everyday....the maximum it has grown has been for 1-1.5 mm and the smallest is less than half a mm...it never goes away...whenever i drink ginger and honey drink it goes very small and whenever i drink alcohol it gets a lil bigger...but never goes away...im only 21 years old male...
i h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> throat, it's right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple...somedays it doesn't bother me, but right now it's really tight, (kinda feels like a muscle cramp) and pulls at certain muscles in my head..the sternocleidomastoid or something ??...i looked it up and it's around that area where i feel the constant pulling. I've been given medicine for it, but it hasn't done a darn thing. any idea's as to what this is?? i hope i made sense, but it's kind of hard to explain, it just feels really weird.
I get some weird sensations sometimesunder my jaw and chin area I noticed a lump in my neck(slightly under <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> jaw, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple,right side) back in October of 09. I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve been seeing an ENT and my family doctor about it and they both said it is 7mm and movable.They also both agree there is nothing to worry about. Blood test recently have shown my thyroid levels are off and I have some nodules on my thyroid.
almost daily I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve spasms on the right side of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> neck/throat (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple) that causes coughing/gagging and often slight vomiting, and my right eye waters profusely, and my right nostril starts dripping. Only lasts a few minutes, but can happen several times a day. I take wellbutrin in am, and sometimes think it might be due to that, but have not been able to find any answers. also seems to be a small swelling on right side of throat where I feel the spasms.
my Main worry is during this time the bone or whatever it is that sits just above the adams apple has become very very sore to touch and has made it painful to swallow. The area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple isn't red, there is no obvious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> but it is ever so slightly swollen I think. This started this mon 31st march and wasn't too bad but has gotten much worse up to this point now. Its sore when I eat, drink and even speak at times.
the exact position is about two centimeter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple slightly on the right side.i am only 21,male...i h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> history of moderate to occasional smoking and drinking sometimes and i have no history of cancer in my family....i cannot feel any lump on the inside of my throat when i swallow at all...im really scared and i have an appointment with my physician next week...could this be cancer....
I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> tiny olive size <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on right side lower right almost in center <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> collar bone. I have been coughing somewhat with phlegm mucous like some kind of cold virus /never smoked. take b/pressure pill. Otherwise good health/veg. for 6 yrs. I see my pulse beating of the lump but No pain. I have bad teeth. can u tell me what it could be?
i noticed by chance i h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve 3 small hard round lumps on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> neck. one abv <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple and one on the left and on the right above adams apple. they are painless unless i pock at them too much and cannot be felt if i tilt my neck backwards. i am getting rather worried its been about 2 weeks i first noticed the first. last week i finished a course of antibiotics for an upper respitory tract infection , could that have anything to do with them?
Something has caused me to become aware of my breathing, I think it was a visit to the dentist recently in which I was trying to control <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> anxiety to h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> tooth ground down for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> crown. Once I became aware of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> breathing I think I begin to try to meter it, which was my first mistake. all it took was trying to yawn one time and not being able t,o and it started a small but growing panic.
The thing is I was fine then all of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sudden I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve these two odd pains in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> neck and jaw which I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve never had before. I have had issues with my throat before with soreness, sensation of a lump in the throat and the odd day when just above the adams apple (larynx area I think) has been sore. Never had pain in my jaw or neck before though. I can't feel any unusual lumps or bumps anywhere and I have been checked before by my doc and hospital. It does worry me and I am a worrier.
I went to the doctor back in October I believe because I felt like I had something stuck in my throat and I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very minute ammount of blood in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> saliva when I spit. anyway, he told me I h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sinus infection and gave me antibiotics. Now I have always had allergies and plenty of sinus infections and I knew this was no sinus infection. So I take the antibiotics and nothing changes. So I go back to the same doctors office to see a different doctor.
So I am a 33 year old male, in the past I was social smoker and drinker. I occasionally when I swallow (a "dry" swallow with saliva, never with food) I have a click or a pop sound I can hear it and I can feel it on the outside of my neck, just to the right and just above my adams apple.

i sometime cant breathe for a second cause muscus like blocks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> air. today i h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ve gotten <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> little like brownish spot on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple. i just want to know whats with my body right now.! i dont know what to do. i have done research and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foundan> out that since i had mold in my room like somewhat alot of mold maybe since i have been exposused to it to much and got very ill. i dont know please help.
The pain seems to have subsided somewhat but there definitely feels like a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in the throat, just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>bove the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple on one side. I feel it when I yawn and cough, but I don't cough a lot or anything. But it does feel like it and its been consistent for 3weeks now really. I'm worried that the only thing it could be is cancer or a tumour, what else could it be because I really don't think its anxiety.
