Lump behind lungs

Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind lungs

lump

Avatar n tn Yes both lungs. The doc said it’s not in my lungs, it only feels that way. He still thinks its acid reflux causing the inflammation. I think the only way to get to the cause is to see a pulmonary expert. And the only way I’ll get any answers is to have an endoscopy. This way the doc will see what’s really going on. I’ve been procrastinating about going because they have to put you to sleep when they stick the camera down your throat. This is why I’ve posted my problem.
Avatar n tn Even right down to the swallowing, the mildly achy back pain on the back exactly behind the lump. Weird!!!!! Thanks again!
964695 tn?1247289633 Also im noticing constant mucus in my lungs( i also had both lungs collapse last year so that may not be envolved with the lump)...i have tried to squeeze it thinking maybe it was a "boil"...nothing came out. I also have a reoccuring boil on my lower back which does burst if squeezed containing a blood/puss type substance..a rare reoccuring boil in my groin area aswell sinilair to the one on my back..comes and goes. But my neck lump has never shrunk. So my main question is...
Avatar n tn Sometimes when the lump in my throat hurts the right side of my ear hurts as well. The gland behind my ear is swollen, but it's been like that since I was around 14. I feel like I can't lay on my right side because it feels like in going ton choke if I fall asleep. I have shortness of breath and sometimes painful chest pain randomly. It feels like someone is crunching my upper chest like it's going to explode.
Avatar n tn About 3 weeks ago, I noticed I had a feeling like a hair was stuck in the back of my throat. I just ignored it for a little while until it turned into a feeling of a lump.
Avatar n tn Every morning when I wake up it feels as though I have a lump in my throat. When I brush my teeth I start to spit up alot of brown mucus and blood and I wanted to know what that means and if it is coming from my lungs and is this a serious matter?
1267372 tn?1317834880 I took Whitney to the pediatrician yesterday because her chest/heart/lungs hurt and she was just plain feeling worse. And since I was sick, I wanted to make sure she wasn't getting something too. Good news is that she doesn't appear to have anything I might have. Bad news is that she said the neuropathy/dysautonomia is making her hurt there. The nerves in her lungs or chest wall are probably misfiring or hypersensitive. Nothing she could do, but to call the neurologist today.
Avatar f tn Hi there i recently went to the doctors as i have had a lump behind my ear for 4 years and i am recently getting pains in my chest and i think that cancer has spread from this lump to my lungs. However my doctor insisted he couldnt feel anything sinister and said that he could see i was worried so wasnt going to leave me worried and would try to prove my thoughts wrong so he has set up an appointment for me to get my bloods taken that will cover everything, thyroid levels, the lot!
337833 tn?1195462705 On a couple occasions, I had the same type of pain, along with a small lump pop out of my neck, just behind the jawbone. I have not had an issue with this in several years that I can remember since. I question now, due to issues with hypertension and wonder if there are other underlying issues which may be causing it. I have already been prescribed beta blockers, which don't seem to do much, as well as underwent testing for pheochromocytoma (which came back negative.
1050938 tn?1311557178 There is some sort of inflamed lump behind my right tonsil which I can feel in my neck when I swallow. I've had it before without ever knowing what the heck was causing it. It does go away after a time, just leaving me with questions until the next flare. It does seem to link itself with the overall feeling I have of "Bleh, need to sleep," though.
Avatar n tn I have taken at least 10 different inhalers, clarinex, antibiotics, antacids, and nasal spray. Nothing works. I now also have a small lump behind my left ear (not sure if it is related in any way or not). If this was due to allergies or asthma, wouldn't the inhalers and meds have helped? What other possibilities could there be or should I be trying something else or getting another opinion a this point. I am 37 and have never had a history of asthma and have no history in my family either.
Avatar m tn An x ray found a 3cm lump on my right lung behind the heart. I have never smoked. My father died at the age of 65 of pulmonary fibrosis. I am being scheduled for a CT Scan. Will this show if it is cancer.

Avatar m tn The glands on either side of the neck, under the jaw, or behind the ears commonly swell when you have a cold or sore throat. Glands can also swell following an injury, such as a cut or bite, near the gland or when a tumor or infection occurs in the mouth, head, or neck. Glands in the armpit (axillary lymph nodes) may swell from an injury or infection to the arm or hand. A rare cause of axillary swelling may be breast cancer or lymphoma.
Avatar dr m tn Do you feel like you can never get enough oxygen into your lungs? Do you feel tired all day no matter how much sleep you get? Have you tried various home remedies, over-the-counter medications or even prescription medications with no help? If you answered yes to any of the above, what you will read below will show you how critical it is to breathe well through your nose. Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period.
Avatar n tn I have lost a ton of weight and even though I'm eating, I can't put any weight back on. The lump....yeah, I have a lump in my throat that feels like a lump of bread is stuck and won't go down. It does not hurt and I can swallow food or liquids just fine, but why is it there? How have things turned out with you?
Avatar n tn Can certain Antibiotics make the symptoms in the throat and the sweeling of gas in the stomach and the difficulity swallowing worse?
Avatar n tn ihad an ECD amd CHEST XRAY. the doctor told me that my lungs were probably congested with phlegm so she prescribed me a couple of medicines. i forgot the names of the medicines. she told me that they were supposed to clear my lungs. but after i took the medicines for a couple of times, my throat felt numb again, and i always felt my chest was heavy.
Avatar n tn Would you say, you have heartburn, acidic burning feeling behind your breastbone or in the throat? If yes, then your hard breathing may be from acid, which comes into lungs and causes narrowing of small breathing pathways (bronchioli). This is like in asthma. It's not an allergy, but irritation of lungs. If acid goes further into the lungs, it may cause aspiration pneumonia. This causes permanent lung damage. You should by any means avoid these attacks.
Avatar n tn its on my left shoulderblade right behind where i had the ache on my chest. however this back pain feels more like a lump is there or like i've slept on one of my sons toys that he left on my bed. i dont know. other then all the tests above i also got 1 more blood test done, plus another x-ray and ultrasounds done. doctors still say (9 in total including the family doctor). i dont have cancer or anything serious. they still keep saying muscle trauma (or similar stuff).

790669 tn?1465192699 Fast forward a couple of months and we found out Brian's sister n law had pancreatic cancer and by September we lost her. Brian's brother passed away 3 years earlier and together they left behind 2 sons. On October 14th, I got the worst call of my life. My brothers girlfriend committed suicide. A death I pray I never and no on ever has to go through. No control, no saying goodbye, no we love you, no I'm sorry, no saying anything and it's to late. I still cry to this day for Hannah.
Avatar f tn Turns out, after much distress, ENTs (inner ear infections, tinnitus, esophagitis, constant fluid in my ears, dizziness, migraines, tooth/facial pain, sinusitis, asthma like symptoms, gagging)---lump in my throat, began to have the burning behind my sternum (which felt more like pressure, not burning), absolutely no way to get rid of the mucus plugs I could "feel" in the back of my throat and up into my sinuses--- It's something called "Silent Reflux" or laryngopharyngeal

Avatar n tn Summer 07 I found another lump on my implant. I had an implant exchange and the lump removed - it was cancer. I had 8 treatments of ACT chemo. I am starting radiation in Feb for 6 1/2 weeks. They are giving me chemo and rad - to make sure that the cancer it out not because I have cancer still in my body. They told me that the rad it to kill any cells that were missed from the removal of the lump. Althought the breast tissue was removed they are not able to remove the whole breast.
143123 tn?1274304425 He said that he has cancer in his lungs, throat and behind his tonsils. So, is scheduled to see a specialist on Monday. He went to the doctor for something else in April and none of this was showing. So, it has my family worried that if its this bad in July...it's growing fast. I am 25 years old and he's the only grandfather I have. My paternal grandfather passed away when I was 9. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with this?
Avatar n tn I am unable to get out of my house and drive since I am afraid to black out or pass out behind the wheel or in public. I dunno if this helps but I had a daughter almost six months ago, so could it be hormones, electrolights or a metabolic disorder? What about a digestive problem? I am so desperate to get back to life and having fun with my family. I need answers or suggestions of what else to check for...Anyone who has any advice please help me! Thanks! I am also on BC.
