Every time I've checked for the past month, I've noticed a lump on the right side of my neck. I went in to the doctor about a week after I first noticed it, and he said that it's probably just my lymph nodes flaring up. It's not that large, but definitely there and definitely asymmetrical. Should I go in again?
This just started last night. I got up to make my son a bottle and the right side of my throat felt numb. The next couple of times I got up I noticed the same thing and when I tried to swallow, it felt like I couldn't get down whatever it is. This morning, it's a little less numb feeling and more like something is caught behind my tonsil, pressing 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?
Hello! A clinical examination of this swelling 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 skin in that area.Do you have sore throat, sinusitis, dandruff or any scalp infection? These infections can cause enlarged lymph nodes. Is it freely mobile under the skin? Since you have noticed it now and do not have any other associated symptoms there are chances that it is mostly a benign type of lump.
Just above this very top part (right wher my neck meets the underside of my chin) it feels like there are two small, hard peas - would these be lymph nodes? I also have what I think must be a lymph node at the top of neck on my left side near my ear. Also, on the right side of my neck just under the thyroid (or what I think must be my thyroid) it feels like there might be some kind of squishy mass (which may have always been there, but I was never in the habit of feeling my neck before).
hello, it's inside my throat at the top of my neck i can feel the pea size lump 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?
I felt it again, I do not think it has changed in size but it is definitely there and after a few minutes of prodding it I noticed later that the my right ear and right gland area around my throat felt a little sore, nothing major but probably no coincidence and I wondered if it had been irritated by me poking around? So it is worrying me again, 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. Advice appreciated.
Lump in throat. Sometimes I as well get the feeling of a necklace around my throat, on a few occassions it turned out to be (even though I have other GI problems) stress or what is soetimes called hysterical throat.
Now I have what feels like a canker sore on the right side of my throat at the base of my where my tongue hits when I swallow. I constantly feel pressure in the middle of my back and have recently started having heartburn terribly. I don't have wisdom teeth, but I have had a chronic sinus infection. I had my uvula removed almost 3 years ago. Any ideas?
i have a lump on right back side of mouth in the sinus drainage area and it's painful. i'm always clearing my throat and coughing spells. what is this?
Recently I found a small soft lump in my throat under my chin at my jaw line. I have had a sore throat and then I notice the lump. My sore throat went away but the lump is still there. Sometimes I have pain in my throat near the lump but it only lasts a second and then goes away. It's on the right side of my face, nothing on the left. Should I be alarms or does it just sound like swollen lymph node?? Help!!

Just the feeling of a lump and it is only on the right side of the throat. The front of my throat appears swollen and if my head is tilted up the lump makes it difficult or impossible to swallow. Feeling around the area it feels like something has grown into the area where my thyroid used to be. I know that they did leave the parathyroid glands in. Is it possible that they now are enlarged?
About 2 weeks ago I had a feeling of something stuck on the right side of my throat. Sometimes it is more noticable then other times but it has not gone away. I ahve been having a lot of belching along with this. I figure I must be swallowing a lot of air trying to get rid of the lump feeling. I have not had any heartburn. Should I make an appt. with a ENT or GI Dr. or is there something else I could try to make it go away. Any ideas would be appreciated.
It seems to effect even the middle of my throat with a gag reaction. Researching your medication, I see that it's a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), which means you will be making LESS acid. If it doesn't seem to be helping you, tell your doctor. I know that omeprazole (in any form) does not work for me, so possibly not all PPIs will work for you.
But because of crappy insurance I did not keep the appt because of the bill I had already received. The lump in my throat sensation feels better at times but never goes away. I dont feel it when I am eating or talking. In the mornings my throat and mouth feel very dry. Sometimes it feels as if my throat or esophagus is swelling. I am not sure that lump in throat is the right description. I do think that the feeling is worsened by tomatoe based foods and chocolate.
I usually feel this just after eating and I feel very nauseous some of the time. I have a bit of a feeling of pins and needles in my throat sometimes. I can eat and drink still (no blockage) but my throat and chest feel sore especially when swallowing my own saliva. I also have a rash on my stomach, but only this once have I gotten that so that could be something completely seperate, like a bug bite. Does this sound like food allergy symptoms??
hello i have the same sort of problem. the thing is i can see the lump my doc said its a cysts and not to worrie but i do.
Around the same time (about 8 or 9 months ago) i started getting this feeling in my throat like a lump. It's kind of like someone is poking me right below the adams apple in that "dip" i guess you would call it and pushing down. It gets worse when i'm nervous, and is better when i first wake up..and gets worse in the evening. I read it was some sort of spasm and nothing to worry about, so i didn't worry about it. Here's the wierd part, though.
(1) I appreciate your wonderful medical help, but I am very worried about the lump you observed. (2) I require a definitive diagnosis as to the nature of this lump, in writing. If you are unable to provide me with this diagnosis, please refer me to a physician who will. (3) I would like to have this lump removed, and would appreciate referral to a physician who could do so. If you get no satisfactory results in thirty days, find another physician. Kepp us posted.
I have lump on right side of throat at back as well. It is a little red but is very large, thought it was always just a gland swollen or something coz have had tonsilitus previously and had cold etc. It is actually well big takes about quater of back of throat up, can breath fine n everthing but startin to get worried, anyone know anythig?
Had an ultrasound of my thyroid and found one or two nodules but my doc didn't say anything needed to be done and just needed to be monitored. However, the sensation of fullness or the lump on my right side is very discomforting and I worry about it a lot as if it is cancer or if I need surgery. Any information would be great and appreciated.
5 years) undescribable feeling in right side of throat and upper back right lung almost always have to be conscious of breathing. My breath feels heated (?) - actually steams up my glasses. I have had EKG, numerous heart tests, ENT looked in my throat, and my M.D. performed lung function tests and Chest X-ray and did blood work along with thyroid ultrasound - all have come back normal. I do cardio daily and lift weights on weekends. I smoked for 27 years but quit 10 months ago.
I have had intermittant pain in my right side for 25 years, since I was 19. I had my gall bladder checked out 10 years ago and nothing was found. I coincidently have drank regulary for the same amount of time since I was 19. My liver function tests all come back normal, as I have one done every year, however, the last test a year ago showed a little elevated, in the high 40's. During an ultrasound fatty liver was discovered. I am also overweight.
however, last night, i noticed that the soreness was only in one specific area of my throat. the very back of my mouth on my right side. i checked in the mirror this morning and there is a large swollen lump that hurts when i poke it, swallow, eat, or anything. it doesn't hurt to breathe, or restrict air flow in any way. my questions are this: What could it be? Should i see a doctor? (no insurance/ very little money.
Then last night I was at a friends house watching movies and I noticed a hard lump in the right side of my neck right under my jaw and so I massaged it and the more I massaged it..it started to go away. After words it has been sore here and there on the inside of my throat but no more lump. What the heck could that have been? Last but not least as I don't know how serious this could be I have found a HUGE lump in my ear canal. I believe it has been due to this...

Hello all. I'm new. I have a lump in my throat that the nurse practitioner diagnosed as a goiter. I go Tuesday for my thyroid panel results. I am 10 weeks pregnant and worried about the results. Has anyone else been through this? If so, what treatments do they do and what are considered safe during pregnany? I noticed the goiter in Jan but have been putting off going to the doctor. I am a nurse and one of the worst patients. *smile* Any replies would be helpful. Thank you for your time.
Hi, A lump behind the ear could be due to throat infection, insect bite, accidental trauma to the site, ear infection , etc. Lymph nodes in the region are known as post auricular lymph nodes and can enlarge secondary to infection, inflammation, etc. You could try some warm compresses at the site, warm saline gargles for his sore throat and some oral antihistamine medications for the swelling. This could be mastoiditis, cervical lymphadenopathy or parotitis.
