lump

Avatar f tn It all started about three months ago with a feeling of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. Not an actual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>, but the feeling of one, right below where my adam's apple would be (I'm female though). I'd feel it on and off through the day, sometimes not so bad, and sometimes very noticeable. When I eat or drink anything it gets better though, the feeling of the lump goes away.

210459 tn?1197085792 Just recently I have dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>covered a round <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>m's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple. Its in the center of my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t and almost looks like a second adam's apple when I swallow. Im a 23 year old male (non-smoker and non-drinker). It doesnt hurt at all and the only reason I found an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>, I was rubbing my neck and felt a lump. It moves up and down when I swallow. If Im sitting relaxed it doesnt portrude my skin...but if I flex my muscles or make my neck tight it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a noticeable lump.
Avatar n tn "tightness feeling in [your] throat " can be from many reasons, than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> globus sensation that paulyK mentions an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a good term for it. anxiety, asthma, GERD acid reflux, foreign bodies, these need evaluation by your doctor.
Avatar m tn Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> may or may not be what you have, but hopefully it will help someone. I always felt like something was stuck in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t or I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t, sometimes left side, sometimes right side. I had trouble swallowing, was afraid to eat at first for fear or choking. I was very terrified for months.

I do not recall it ever being tender. I have in my (dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tant) past had a lot of problems with my ears starting with a perforated ear drum when I was a baby, I also had (never 100% confirmed) glandular fever when I was 16. also something else just occured to me....
494087 tn?1257796807 Of course my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t wasn't closing. Sometimes I felt a huge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t and that scared me...until I actually looked and noticed that it was my uvula touching the back of my tongue. The more you focus on than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> symptom the worse it gets. Try not to focus on it. I agree with nursegirl. Get the all clear from your doc and start focusing on your anxiety an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>sues. Good luck and keep us posted. For what it's worth that particular symptom vanan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>hed for me once I realized that it was common.
Avatar n tn it feels to me like a strained muscle in the thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t and not actually on the interior of the thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t (like an infection or something similar). could possibly be related to allergies maybe? if anyone has any thoughts please share I am trying to narrow down what than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> so I can make some changes to correct it.

Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar f tn Level three indicates the position of the lymph nodes. In your case they are near the area where a man's " adam's apple" would be. ( More or less ) Unless you meant "stage" and not level. If it says stage, that means how far along in a dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ease you are, or how long you've had the problem. They are saying that the gland an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> measuring 1.2 cm whereas a normal size an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> up to 1 cm. They haven't determined the cause, but are saying it could be from a viral infection, mono, etc.
Avatar n tn I'm a 30 year old male and have a hard cyst like lump on the front part of my neck, basically next to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>m's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple at the thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t, within my beard area. I'm worried than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> could be a manifestation of primary syphilan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> given an unprotected oral (both ways) encounter with a female escort CSW in London around 4 weeks ago? Have you ever seen a primary syphilan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> chancre on the lower neck? an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> it possible?
Avatar n tn I am not sure what the lump in the thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> about. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> it on the side or ne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>m's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple or where?

Avatar m tn I've had FMS for many years now, they've tested for diabetes, and I think for thyroid problems also. Still, I have a question to you about thyroid problems. For a long time now, (and than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> symptom has gotten worse over time) I've noticed that my throat "cracks" if I move it with my hand, (near the adam's apple), and it feels like an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>therean>'s a "lump" or hard object behind the throat/adam's apple area. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> related to thyroid problems or not?

Avatar f tn The first couple of days it was in my tonsils, then traveled to what felt like behind my uvula. Today it has been down deeper in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t where my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>m's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple would be. Researching than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> I've come to believe it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> muscle related like you all are describing. I'm always under stress and am constantly having muscle problems in my back and neck. my neck and back feel okay, I mean nothing out of the ordinary, so it's weird that I'm not sure what could be causing it.
Avatar n tn after coughing, click swallow can be abrupt. Sensation of something stuck in lower thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t (below adam’s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple and level with where the neck joins the chest, and a feeling of something stuck in the upper part of the oesophagus). Occasional production of phlegm but not frequent. Dry retching. The globus sensation of something stuck an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not always present but when present, causes periods of retching to the point of violent choking.
Avatar n tn He prescibed two meds that seemed to have worked up until 2 weeks ago when the burning in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t returned accompanied by a constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t and difficulty swallowing solid foods. I went back to my Dr. and he felt I was having a "flare up", so he prescribed Nexium for a two week period to get it under control. Well, the burning has subsided but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>therean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> still a constant lump in my throat and I still have constant difficulty in swallowing.
Avatar n tn Let me just give you a quick overview (i'm so sick of telling it!) Well, since august 23, I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. It started at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>m's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>pple then gradually went down to the biginning of my breast bone. I went to the doctor and she ran the light down my throat and said it was gerd.
Avatar n tn The swelling also narrows the throat and all of that causes the feeling of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in the thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. He said that thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t irritation an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> commonly caused by acid reflux (even at night when you're sleeping). another contributor can be sleep apnea, and I have read that smoking can hurt your throat. alcohol, chocolate and caffeine are also bad. a bacterial infection can cause throat problems, but my Strep test was negative.
Avatar f tn my vocal range has decreased. Singing causes pain and tightness on both sides of my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t ne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r my tonsils, and in both ears, and even a mild headache. I've been singing in choirs for over 30 years and have never experienced than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> before. I'd never heard the link with a hypothyroid, which I also have. I guess I need to get my thyroid checked out. Best wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>hes to you! If anybody has a solution, let me know. I know doctors can't always figure out my health problems....
885099 tn?1243550605 We present a series of 11 cases in which all patients had an audible clicking or popping noan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>e in the thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t associated with neck and throat pain when swallowing or turning the neck. The most helpful diagnostic procedure was careful examination and palpation of the neck while the patient swallowed to localize the side and source of the clicking. Laryngeal computed tomographic (CT) scans helped in some cases to demonstrate thyroid-cartilage and/or vertebral body asymmetry.

Avatar n tn I agree with Karie's suggestion about taking the DGL (De-Glycyrrhizinated Licorice), which doesn't raan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>e blood pressure, because the steroidal part of natural licorice has been removed, to produce DGL. These chewable tablets are what my husband and I use DaILY, shortly before each meal. The DGL seems to really help to prevent our reflux (and helps heal ulcers too). We have the LPR type of GER.
