Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat breathing

lump

I have developed a large lump in my throat right behind my tongue, but where my right tonsil is. This lump is about the size of a ping-pong ball and makes it very hard for me to swallow and breath and makes my voice sound funny. I have a doctor's appointment but they couldn't see me for a month. Any ideas what it my be? It doesn't hurt, it's hard, it's red and it is only uncomfortable because of the breathing thing. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi, The lump in the thraot feeling can occur in GERD though it can occur in other conditions as well. If it is due to GERD then it will disappear by taking PPI (Prilosec) or H2RA ( Zantac) ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.

I noticed about two days ago that I have developed a lump in my throat. It is visible to other people, about an inch in diameter, and in the front of what would be my adams apple, if I were not a woman. I have had increased fatigue for the past couple weeks and my allergies have been terrible. I tried taking allergy medication, but it has made no differece. I dont have medical insurance and cant afford to go to the doctor. Any opinions?
For the past 2-3 days I have had a lump in my throat that feels like I have something lodged in there, like I swallowed something to big and it will not go down. It is a rather irritating feeling. What could this be? What are some immediate treatment options? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! For the past few weeks I've had what feels like a sort of lump in my throat. When I say "lump", I mean it feels like that on the inside. There is nothing visible from the outside. The best way to describe this feeling is like this: When you swallow a tablet (e.g. a small Aspirin tablet) without any water, you kind of feel the tablet sitting in your throat (or slowly moving down your throat) for a couple minutes afterwards.
If you are having problems with acid reflux, the sensation could be globus. It's a 'feeling' of something in the throat - like a lump. If this is the reason, you need to work with your doc to try to bring the reflux under control.
Hi, For the past day or so I have what feels like a lump in my throat. It is worse when eating. Whenever I eat something I will get a pain in my throat that will travel down to my stomach. I also feel like it is hard to swallow food. I went to see my dr about this and she thought it may be my thyroid but tests were negative. I have also had 3 episodes in the past 5 months where I get a pain in my abdomen (right about the naval area) which is always followed by nausea and vomitting.
I have been experiencing a sensation of a lump in the throat or tightness/pressure in my upper chest in combination with a pain in my back/spine at the same level of the feeling in my chest. This feeling has persisted for about 4 weeks. I don't seem to have diificulty breathing, although I do feel the sensation more when I breathe deeply. Could this be a respiratory problem? Does this sound like anything you've heard of?
It seems to me it could be an allergy, but when I look at allergy symptoms they say I would have trouble breathing. I do not. I just have a painful lump in my throat, often coupled with nausea and diarrhea. I also feel like my throat tickles a lot of the time. It feels very irritated when I eat bread and toast (I eat whole wheat). I have a rash on my stomach, which could be a bug bite, but might be related if it is an allergy. How would can I identify if I have stress or an allergy?
Basically, this started a month or so into going to university. Ill be the first to admit im a shy boy and i found the lecture rooms and the amount of people at uni compared to school a bit daunting. However, about 2 months ago i got a sensation of a "lump in my throat"... it does not hurt and it does not obstuct my breathing or eating/drinking in any way that i can think off. its just really anoying and it wont go away.
I kept clearing my throat, hacking, coughing; I could feel spasming in my throat, difficulty breathing, and there was a constant feeling of something being stuck in there. I went to a gastro doctor who scoped me, and he discovered a rash all over my esophagus and inner stomach, as well as a very enlarged larynx and swollen vocal cords. He promptly diagnosed it as LPR/ acid reflux/ GERD and gave me a PPI prescription.

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.
Every once in a while I also would get mild chest pain and pain in my sternum. I also get this feeling that there is a lump in my throat but have tested negative for thyrhoids. My red and white blood cell has come back normal. Ultrasound if stomach is normal. X-rays of chest and stomach are normal. Ct scan came back normal also. Ive been to it could be due to acid reflex and heart burn but I don't get the burning sensations or the acid reflex coming up my throat. Anyone have a clue?
I have experienced these symptoms myself on a daily basis,and they were anxiety related.I had trouble swallowing and always felt like a lump in the throat feeling.This is what is known as "globus hystericus".It is generally an anxiety related phenomenon.I was also unable to take a full breath.Again anxiety related.But please check with your DOCTOR first just to be safe.I am sure the smoking is not helping you either.Good luck, Dimi.
I can remember complaining about the lump sensation in my throat back then. I have had repeated endoscopies. They said I have a Hiatal Hernia/acid reflux.. And also my colonoscopy showed IBS/differticultis.. The last tests done 4 yrs. ago showed the same. They suspected Barret's but the pathology report showed negative to the Barrett's. I have been under so much stress. My husband is very ill/and I have a daughter who has disabilties. So I am under alot of stress.
Hi Colleen, I read your other post too and I will tell you that I am experiencing the same symptoms as you, bladder/bowel problems, vertigo, facial spasms/burning due to Cranial nerve VII , double vision , numbness and tingling in feet and "vibrations thru out my body to name a few. I too have the lump in the throat and last year I went to the Acute Care clinic at Walter Reed and he said I was depressed and put me on Klonipin. I am not depressed so I only took it for a few days.
the lump in your throat may be due to the irritation and some swelling in the back of your throat as well as the post nasal drip.......
In the beginning I had two masses in my throat. One was in my thyroid and the other was to the left of it. From the very first the Endocrinologist said the 2nd mass was a Brackel Clif Cyst. I went to the Doctor because I was sick, my throat hurt. They said I had an infection and treated me with antibotics and then removed my thyroid. They were all surprised when the mass in my thyroid turned out to be cancer, I guess because Thyroid Cancer is very rare.
Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
I have the lump in throat feeling, too. I am scheduled for my first endoscopy next month. I have had GERD for many years. I had bad experiences with the PPI's and Zantac (Ranitidine) isn't the least bit helpful. I am careful with my diet, but I still get this feeling in my throat and the pain right below the sternum. I rarely get heartburn from my foods any more, because I am watching very carefully what I eat. What kind of treatment other than PPI's and/or Ranitidine do you suggest?
Luke's hospital, but I can't get in till the end of October. I still have the feeling like there's a lump in the back of my throat when I swallow, and when I breath I can feel it near my windpipe. I haven't had any trouble breathing yet so I'm okay. But it's frustrating because it bothers me. Is there anything I can do for myself to calm myself down until I see the ENT doctor? I try to calm myself but I just get too worried about what's going on. Luckily I live with my parents.
Did your dr talk to you about acid reflux? Acid reflux can cause the feeling of having a lump in your throat. It also can cause breathing issues. It also tends to get worse at night.
