Hi, welcome to the forum, this feeling of lump in the throat is known as Globus sensation. This is mainly seen in gastro esophageal reflex disease or hyperplastic tonsil. The other possibilities are abnormal upper esophageal sphincter function, stress or psychological abnormality causes this sensation due to altered upper esophageal pressure. You may need to undergo endoscopic evaluation which will help to diagnose acid-reflux disease and as well as esophageal pathology.

Hello and hope you are doing well. White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which you have may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor.

You have lymph nodes along either side of you jaw which doctors check when you complain of a sore throat. That tells them further investigating is needed to determine the cause of the infection.

No swollen tonsil, no lump in neck, just the tender neck and the sore throat. To sum up, I have unilateral intermittent sore throat that tends to occur around evening and reaches its peak before i fall to sleep.

Also, note that I had allergic rhinitis as a kid and it's the pollen season right now, even though I don't really know if that's anyway related.

I am worried about my throat which I feel like there’s a lump in it. I felt a pin-pricked on my throat thrice, and I feel like it is closing. I sometimes have a cough and I feel like there’s some mucus in my throat. Burping makes me feel better and takes away my heartburn. Help me, what should I do? I easily get upset and I have some panic attacks. I always feel tired and stressed. My EKG tells that I have sinus arrhythmia, is it because of gerd? What meds are safe for me? thank you so much.
My throat is healing, very slowly, but now I have noticed a lump in the back of my throat. When I open my mouth, you can see, on the left side back wall of my throat, a walnut-sized lump pressing against the skin. Some times the lump seems smaller, other times it seems bigger. I have visited throat specialists and they have not even commented on it. I'm just curious to hear if this sounds like thyroid cancer. I am 19-year-old caucasian female, so I am in the risk group :x Thanks!
Had two scopes done, first found an insignificant hiatal hernia, second found nothing at all. For the past month I feel as though there is a lump in my throat. I get up in the moring feeling fine, within an hour the lump is there, it usually last until early afternoon. By the time I go to bed it is gone. I have been sleeping fine and not walking up with a sore throat, etc. I do not burp after eating or have heartburn or chest pains.....any idea of the cause of this lump?
