Avatar m tn Every time I've checked for the past month, I've noticed a <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my neck. I went background-color: #dae8f4'>in to the doctor about a week after I first noticed it, and he said that it's probably just my lymph nodes flarbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing up. It's not that large, but defbackground-color: #dae8f4'>initely there and defbackground-color: #dae8f4'>initely asymmetrical.

Avatar f tn This just started last night. I got up to make my son a bottle and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my throat felt numb. The next couple of times I got up I noticed the same thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing and when I tried to swallow, it felt like I couldn't get down whatever it is. This mornbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing, it's a little less numb feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing and more like somethbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing is caught behbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ind my tonsil, pressbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing on the back of my throat, or I guess like my tonsil is really swollen but just on the right side. Any idea what this could be?
Avatar n tn Hello! A clbackground-color: #dae8f4'>inical exambackground-color: #dae8f4'>ination <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> this swellbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing is very important to confirm the diagnosis. From your symptoms it seems that it is an enlarged lymph node, a small cyst or growth under the skbackground-color: #dae8f4'>in background-color: #dae8f4'>in that area.Do you have sore throat, sbackground-color: #dae8f4'>inusitis, dandruff or any scalp background-color: #dae8f4'>infection? These background-color: #dae8f4'>infections can cause enlarged lymph nodes. Is it freely mobile under the skbackground-color: #dae8f4'>in? Sbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ince you have noticed it now and do not have any other associated symptoms there are chances that it is mostly a benign type of background-color: #dae8f4'>lump.
Avatar n tn Just above this very top part (right wher my neck meets the underside of my chbackground-color: #dae8f4'>in) it feels like there are two small, hard peas - would these be lymph nodes? I also have what I thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ink must be a lymph node at the top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> neck on my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> near my ear. Also, on the right side of my neck just under the thyroid (or what I thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ink must be my thyroid) it feels like there might be some kbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ind of squishy mass (which may have always been there, but I was never background-color: #dae8f4'>in the habit of feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing my neck before).
Avatar n tn hello, it's background-color: #dae8f4'>inside my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> at the top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my neck i can feel the pea size <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> when i swallow. it goes away sometime but then it comes right back. Do swollen lymh nodes cause this problem as that what my family doctor said that i have..Do it take a while for the swellen of lymh nodes to go down?

So it is worrybackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing me agabackground-color: #dae8f4'>in, I have recently moved house and have just registered with a new GP but it will be a week to 10 days before I can see a doctor.

Avatar n tn Just the feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing of a background-color: #dae8f4'>lump and it is only on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. The front <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> appears swollen and if my head is tilted up the background-color: #dae8f4'>lump makes it difficult or impossible to swallow. Feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing around the area it feels like somethbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing has grown background-color: #dae8f4'>into the area where my thyroid used to be. I know that they did leave the parathyroid glands background-color: #dae8f4'>in. Is it possible that they now are enlarged?
Avatar f tn About 2 weeks ago I had a feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> somethbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing stuck on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>right</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. Sometimes it is more noticable then other times but it has not gone away. I ahve been havbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing a lot of belchbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing along with this. I figure I must be swallowbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing a lot of air trybackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing to get rid of the background-color: #dae8f4'>lump feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing. I have not had any heartburn. Should I make an appt. with a ENT or GI Dr. or is there somethbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing else I could try to make it go away. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn It seems to effect even the middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> with a gag reaction. Researchbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing your medication, I see that it's a proton pump background-color: #dae8f4'>inhibitor (PPI), which means you will be makbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing LESS acid. If it doesn't seem to be helpbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing you, tell your doctor. I know that omeprazole (background-color: #dae8f4'>in any form) does not work for me, so possibly not all PPIs will work for you.
Avatar f tn But because of crappy background-color: #dae8f4'>insurance I did not keep the appt because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the bill I had already received. The <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> sensation feels better at times but never goes away. I dont feel it when I am eatbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing or talkbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing. background-color: #dae8f4'>in the mornbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ings my throat and mouth feel very dry. Sometimes it feels as if my throat or esophagus is swellbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing. I am not sure that background-color: #dae8f4'>lump background-color: #dae8f4'>in throat is the right description. I do thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ink that the feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing is worsened by tomatoe based foods and chocolate.
Avatar n tn I usually feel this just after eatbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing and I feel very nauseous some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the time. I have a bit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a feelbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> pbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ins and needles background-color: #dae8f4'>in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> sometimes. I can eat and drbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ink still (no blockage) but my throat and chest feel sore especially when swallowbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing my own saliva. I also have a rash on my stomach, but only this once have I gotten that so that could be somethbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ing completely seperate, like a bug bite.
