Lump above my adam's apple

Common Questions and Answers about Lump above my adam's apple


Avatar f tn i have a movable lump in my cheek on left side right above jaw line.
Avatar f tn I woke up this morning to see a lump above my adam's apple. Is this normal? I haven't visit the doctor yet. There isn't other symtoms like sore throat flu or headache. Just a lump there, about an inch. Anyone know...
Avatar m tn Around 10 days ago, I noticed a small lump in the right side of the my neck, on the underside of my jaw above my adam's apple. I believe it's actually a lymph node, but I can't tell for sure. A few days ago, it was noticeably larger than it is now. Right now, I'd say its size is 3 or 4 mm, while a couple of days ago was 6 or 7 mm. It is painful and firm, but it does sort of move around if I grab it.
Avatar n tn that go up and down. The top one is up under my chin and looks like a man's adam's apple, and then there's two just underneath it, with the bottom most one right above my collar bone. I can feel the entire thyroid, starting at the base of my neck and going all the way up to just under my chin - where incidentally I seem to have developed a double chin out of the blue.
Avatar m tn I believe it's in the submandibular region. It's above my adam's apple, under my chin slightly to the left (my left).. When I feel it, it feels like it starts out very thin, and then starts to expand outwards.. the widest section of the lump is no larger than my thumb..and the general length in total is less than my thumb.. It feels quite hard, doesn't move that freely. And is not on the other side.. I noticed it one week ago and it has not subsided at all..
Avatar n tn It almost looks like a large adam's apple, however, it is not! I'm female and never had this before. My TT was because of a goiter/hashimotos. It is HOT to the touch.
Avatar n tn I am not convinced that it is even my esophagus as my throat and nose burn all the time and my neck (adam's apple) is sore to touch. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.
Avatar m tn About two months ago I noticed a very small hard lump on the right side of my throat just above my my adam's apple. (I am female). Two months ago it was about the size of a tic-tac. Two days ago I noticed that it has almost doubled in size. I have been diagnosed with multiple Pulmonary Nodules in the past 8 months. How likely is it that this lump in my neck is related to the nodules in my lungs? Is this something I should be overly concerned about?
Avatar m tn It is about level with my Adam's apple, 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....
210459 tn?1197085792 Just recently I have discovered a round lump under my adam's apple. Its in the center of my throat 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.
Avatar m tn My throat is very tight and I feel a lump sensation, especially when swallowing, right below the adam's apple. It always feels like there is mucus in my throat and am constantly trying not to clear it (which is tough). BACKGROUND INFO/HOW IT HAPPENED Almost 4 weeks ago, after singing for a rehearsal, my throat felt a bit tight. The next morning I could tell that something was wrong as my voice seemed weaker and my throat seemed constricted or tight.
Avatar f tn Still feeling fine but throat starting to feel a bit constricted. Lump is about 1 inch above collar bone, just offset to left of middle of throat. It's where I'd expect my thyroid to be. Now noticeable without having to feel for it. I'm from Scotland and have a really horrible doctor, no people skills at all. Throat exam cursory at best, discussion of symptoms minimal. Only symptoms I think I may have and not sure these are relevant.
Avatar m tn My parents kept on telling me that it was probably just a swollen gland but it's grown and now it's visible. I don't think thats normal. It's above my adam's apple and on the left side of my neck. It's also the size of a large marble. Please shed some light for me. I've been worried that it may be a lymphoma, I would really appreciate the help. Thanks so much for your time!
Avatar n tn Hold the mirror so that you can see the area of your neck just below the Adam's apple and right above the collarbone. This is the general location of your thyroid gland. Tip your head back, while keeping this view of your neck and thyroid area in your mirror. Take a drink of water and swallow. As you swallow, look at your neck. Watch carefully for any bulges, enlargement, protrusions, or unusual appearances in this area when you swallow. Repeat this process several times.
Avatar n tn The lump sensation moved from below Adam's Apple to above and the very minor soreness seemed to widen at the beginning of my throat. No fever or any other cold symtoms. I'm taking two 20 MG capsuls twice a day and two 120MG tablets of Rantitide at bedtime. So far, after 3 weeks, no relief but I occassionally feel a lessening of the lump sensation. While I doubt experience acid reflux or even reflux any more, the lump sensation gets worse during the night and in the morning.
Avatar n tn Hold a mirror in front of the area of the neck where the thyroid gland is located. This area is just below the Adam's apple and right above the collarbone. (Note: The Adam's apple is not the thyroid location.) Tip the head back. Take a drink of water and swallow, watching the neck during the process. Check for any bulging or protrusions or up and down movments. If any is detected, call a physician for a check up. Good Luck! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am not a Doctor or in the Medical field.
Avatar n tn For over two years I've had problems that have been dismissed after tests have come back normal. It started with panic attacks out of the blue, then right sided pain in my abdomen, flank, and lower back. After that I developed muscular TMJ that goes back and forth between sides, but mostly on left.
Avatar m tn Helloi have a question regarding submandibular glands under my jaw just above my Adam's apple. When I feel for these I can feel 2 small like pea kind of sized moveable lumps. I have had these for 8 months that I know of. They. Old just be normal sized I don't know this is what I'm wanting to know. Is it possible too feel your unswollen submandibular glands?
Avatar n tn This cyst usually appears in the middle of the neck above the thyroid cartilage (adam's apple). It's a remnant of a canal through which the thyroid gland descended during the development of the fetus. This canal usually closes completely by the time the baby is fully developed, but for some people, a part of the canal persists as a cyst. It usually doesn't cause any symptoms, but it can get infected and cause pain and swelling.
Avatar m tn I've have had all of these tests done and my neck is swollen above the collarbone on both sides... now I can see a lump under my adam's apple that moves when I swallow. Amazingly it was my gynecologist that first discovered my swollen neck a year ago and said to me last week my neck was still looking like a problem. I don't know what the endocrinologist is going to do at the appt next Friday and I'm worried. I've had so many tests done and have yet to be given any answers. Please help....
Avatar m tn About a month and a half ago, i noticed a lump under my chin and above my adam's apple. I was concerned so I went to my doctor. He explained the whole thing about how lymph nodes work and stuff. He also said it doesn't have characteristics that should be a concern. It was not rough, it was pea sized, and round. He said it should go down in about 2 weeks. Well here I am and i still have it for a month and a half and it still has not shrunk.
Avatar m tn This may or may not be what you have, but hopefully it will help someone. I always felt like something was stuck in my throat or I had a lump in my throat, 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.
Avatar m tn On 17th of January I'm having a sore throat could it be due to the oral I gave to the female prostitute? I also felt that there's a lump above my Adam's Apple that hurts even when I don't touch it. It's directly above the Adam's Apple so I'm not sure if there's any Lymph Nodes involved. What are Lymph Nodes and how are they supposed to feel like? I would like to hear your take on this please let me know.
Avatar m tn Just tenderness if I press above the Adam's apple area and the feeling that something is stuck on my epiglottis. He gave me flonase and claritin d and told me it was post nasal drip and allergies. I still do not know why my uvula seems veiny and the pea sized growth is worrisome to me but without insurance I cannot afford to have specialists stare at it through 4 appointments before someone cuts it out for a biopsy. I also think I may be hyper focusing on my throat since quitting smoking.
Avatar m tn My new reason for posting has to do with a tiny pea size lump I found a little over 6 months ago under my jaw, above the Adam's apple. I THINK that it is somewhat moveable but at times I'm not even sure if I'm grabbing it at all. But either way as I said I first found it 6 months ago and I haven't seen any growth since. If anything it may have shrunk a tiny bit but I'm not sure.
Avatar m tn A couple of days ago, I felt a slight bump probably a centimeter above the right side of my Adam's apple. It's not that big though, smaller than a bean but larger than a rice. I'm concerned as this may be a swollen lymph node. I tried to look for the same lump in the left side, but I was not able to find anything. I'm just curious if this may be STD related. Also, wanted to know if when is the best time for me to take an STD test in my case.
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 Adam's apple at the throat, 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?
Avatar n tn Hold a mirror in front of the area of the neck where the thyroid gland is located. This area is just below the Adam's apple and right above the collarbone. (Note: The Adam's apple is not the thyroid location.) Tip the head back. Take a drink of water and swallow, watching the neck during the process. Check for any bulging or protrusions. Reminder: Don't confuse the Adam's apple with the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is located further down on your neck, closer to the collarbone.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your replies. I am going to have all the thyroid tests done again. I can see a small lump on my right side of my "Adam's Apple" would be if I had one. Could this be thyroid related? Thanks very much.
Avatar m tn 8/24 - Noticed a lump on my neck where my neck meets my shoulder. A visible pea size lump appeared above my Adam's apple. I noticed tenderness behind my left year and a need to itch my ear a few days ago but is no longer itchy. Didn't feel 100% and had headache. 8/25 - Another lump under my chin formed. Took ibuprofen in the morning to suppress headache. Felt fine for the rest of the day. Took a hot shower and noticed a fever spike. Fever spiked to about 100.2.
