Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat near adam's apple

lump

It all started about three months ago with a feeling of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. 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.

Just recently I have discovered a round <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adam's</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span>. Its in the center of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 is, 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 is a noticeable lump.
"tightness feeling in [your] throat " can be from many reasons, this globus sensation that paulyK mentions is a good term for it. Anxiety, asthma, GERD acid reflux, foreign bodies, these need evaluation by your doctor.
This may or may not be what you have, but hopefully it will help someone. I always felt like something was stuck in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> or I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, 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.
It is about level with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adam's</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span>, maybe half an inch higher. I do not recall it ever being tender. I have in my (distant) 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....
Of course my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> wasn't closing. Sometimes I felt a huge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 this 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 issues. Good luck and keep us posted. For what it's worth that particular symptom vanished for me once I realized that it was common.
it feels to me like a strained muscle in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and not actually on the interior of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> (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 this is so I can make some changes to correct it.

It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> (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 this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
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 disease you are, or how long you've had the problem. They are saying that the gland is measuring 1.2 cm whereas a normal size is up to 1 cm. They haven't determined the cause, but are saying it could be from a viral infection, mono, etc.
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'>adam's</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span> at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, within my beard area. I'm worried this could be a manifestation of primary syphilis given an unprotected oral (both ways) encounter with a female escort CSW in London around 4 weeks ago? Have you ever seen a primary syphilis chancre on the lower neck? Is it possible?
I am not sure what the lump in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> is about. Is it on the side or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>near</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adam's</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span> or where? It could be a swollen lympth node. Perhaps you should see an Ear/Nose/throat specialist?
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 this 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 there's a "lump" or hard object behind the throat/adam's apple area. Is this related to thyroid problems or not?
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> where my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adam's</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span> would be. Researching this I've come to believe it is 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.
i had similar pains too had a pain in swallowing theres a lump at my neck is it the growth of adam's apple?
After coughing, click swallow can be abrupt. Sensation of something stuck in lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> (below Adam’s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span> 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 is not always present but when present, causes periods of retching to the point of violent choking.
He prescibed two meds that seemed to have worked up until 2 weeks ago when the burning in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> returned accompanied by a constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> 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 there is still a constant lump in my throat and I still have constant difficulty in swallowing.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. It started at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adam's</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span> 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.
The swelling also narrows the throat and all of that causes the feeling of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. He said that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> irritation is 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.
My vocal range has decreased. Singing causes pain and tightness on both sides of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>near</span> 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 this 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 wishes to you! If anybody has a solution, let me know. I know doctors can't always figure out my health problems....
this sensation has been going on since the RAI in 2004. In the past have I expressed this with 2 endos- GI - ENT and many MD's. Recently in Oct 2007 I made a switch to another MD and he ordered the US per my asking. Results/ Findings : on Feb 2007 US - The right lobe measures 2.2c1.0c0.9cm It has mildly heterogeneous echo texture and margins are indistinct. There is an increase cascularity associated with it . Left lobe measures 3.4x1.6x0.
There is a click in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. There's a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>, like a second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adam's</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>apple</span>. I can't swallow or yawn without this click. Sometimes it feels like I am getting strangled". Without any further description, the EMT put his finger right on the lump and told me I had arthritis of the hyoid bone. He gave me some anti-inflamaty drugs. While I was relieved that the EMT recognized my symptoms, I have occasional doubts that something more serious is going on.
I agree with Karie's suggestion about taking the DGL (De-Glycyrrhizinated Licorice), which doesn't raise 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.
In one word, YES. The esophagus is a simply a muscle. The esophagus though a simple muscle, is involved with very complex actions brought about thru the central nervous system. The influence of other muscles within the neck, throat, chest, abdomen, upper back, etc. is profound and clearly requires precise coordination to maintain health. The term " Globus Sensation" or " Globus Histericus", (G.H.) describes the sensation of something in the throat or upper chest.
About a week after I was sent home, I ended up back in the hospital in extreme pain in my back and legs. They fed me morphine (which was fine...lol....at the time) but then nothing else was done. The tests showed nothing and they sent me home a few days after Christmas 2005. Well, I've continued to experience pain in my lower back, buttocks and of course the nerve damage on my left, outer thigh. My pain just feels like they tightened those screws to tight and radiates to my pelvis area too.
