Lump in neck moves when swallowing

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck moves when swallowing


Avatar n tn From what I have read, when it moves up and down when swallowing, it is on the thyroid because the thyroid moves when you swallow. My fairly large nodule moves when I swallow too. I have had ultrasound and biopsy - still awaiting results. Check it out with someone else. You need an ultrasound just to make sure.Good Luck.
Avatar n tn I noticed this weekend a big lump in neck between adams apple and base of neck; the lump moves when i swallow - went to er and it said swollen cartilage - i'm not comfortable with this diagnosis. Anyone else experienced this? thanks.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have had a grape size lump in my neck for a number of years now. Its on the top right hand side of the neck, under the corner of jaw bone, right in the corner of the neck. I always thought it was a swollen gland and didnt think anything of it until i googled it and now anxiety has set in. It cant be seen but can be easily felt just by lightly touching the skin.
210459 tn?1197085792 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. I have been having alot of drainage lately if this is a symptom of something. I can touch it and it moves around and feels rather soft but firm at the same time. Can someone help me. Its really worrisome b/c I dont know what it is. Thanks!
Avatar n tn If you are having problems with acid reflux, the sensation could be globus. It's a 'feeling' of something in the throat - like a lump. If this is the reason, you need to work with your doc to try to bring the reflux under control.
317787 tn?1473362051 Hello, I discovered a lump in my neck above the thyroid about 5 weeks ago. Thinking it would go away I waited til two weeks ago to tell my doctor about it. She ordered a CT Scan with contrast. I was hesitant to put any more chemicals in my body so did not want to get the contrast. As always, Hector was very helpful; he assured me it would be ok. I had the scan done yesterday and should be getting results this week.

Avatar f tn I recently went to doctor because this painless lump in my neck showed up, it feels quite large and is visible to my friends. I thought it was a swollen lymph node so ignored it for 2-3 weeks. it only causes discomfort when i swallow . My dr fellt my neck and said my gland was enlarged and maybe felt a nodule. and ordered tsh and t4, both normal. tsh (1.64) and t4 (1.13).
Avatar n tn I too have been getting dizzy in my head when I first start to eat. I'm a 27yr old female with no known health problems or anything going on with my ears, although now that I think of it my hearing could be better... It started maybe 3 months ago. It always goes away after the 1st couple bites, but now its happening more and more often so I decided to look it up. I've been thinking its more like a chemical response...
Avatar dr m tn This is why these symptoms are most obvious when you first wake up in the morning. It’s also been shown that these same stomach juices can then travel down into the lungs or up into the ears of the sinuses. Pepsin, a digestive enzyme, and H. pylori, a common stomach bacteria, have been found in lung and sinus washings.
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (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.
Avatar n tn pain/pressure in ears - no infection ear feels constantly on fire-no infection when bone of ear is pressed on - pain all thru neck behind eye - pressure and tight entire jaw - pain and swelling upon swallowing - feeling of choking pain in shoulder-some burning when placing finger slightly in ear and moving jaw-major cracking and popping of the jaw This is all on left side. Right side no symptoms. Maybe it is TMJ and the MRI is wrong. I don't know anymore. Anyone have any answers?
192055 tn?1263559137 So i'm personally just trying to ignore the phlegm. Only time its hard is when i'm talking and get a nice large lump of mucus in my way! For some relief though, give Mucinex a try, only take one pill instead of 2 if you think you may be sensitive to the 'dry'effect.
Avatar m tn Im not totally sure that I even have this or that this is what the lump is that im feeling in my neck but it seems like the correct location. I have read that along with swallowing the lump should up and down. My small lump moves as well with swallowing except it seems to move from side to side. Does this mean that its something different? Does it not matter the direction of the movement? Either way I found this lump almost 8 months ago and it doesnt seem to have grown. Its pea size.
Avatar n tn I also have the gurgling. I have post nasal drip and was put on Zyrtec which seemed to help some with the lump in the throat thing but now I feel like I'm swallowing air all the time. I wonder if the Zyrtec dried out the sinuses so now I don't have to swallow as much and am not used to it yet. Since the Zyrtec I've also stopped clearing my throat all the time.
Avatar f tn It never radiates up to my head, just linear - across the collarbones. I also have a hard lump in my neck and one under my tongue... that makes me pretty confident it's not headache related at all.
Avatar n tn Before I was sleeping on my side and my neck was not supported, therefore waking up with neck pain when it should have been rested overnight...anyway...all this together has really helped with my neck issues...I have also learned how to sit better at the computer so that I am not straining to see the screen. I have not had any tooth problems... Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn It is the gland in charge of sperm production which then moves the sperm into the testicle for storage. When the sperm are OVER-produced, they build up in storage and literally “back up” into the epididymis causing major irritation and inflammation. This can be one cause of the infection. So, maybe you are not being sexually active…maybe you are. Either way, your epi-gland might be overworking as a flaw.
Avatar m tn Brushing, rinsing and gargling several times a day has not helped to dislodge them and remove them. It is vexing me how they can remain lodged in my throat even when swallowing other food or drink instead of getting dislodged and swallowed with the rest of the food. I looked at the anatomy of the throat, and can't figure out where these food particles are getting caught and forming into tonsil stones....unless a pocket has formed back there somehow to catch the food particles.
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 f tn The way renal failure is supposed to work when it's Time, is that the toxins build up so high in the blood that they cross the blood-brain barrier. When that happens, the dog loses its personality and really isn't "there". Well, that's the textbook case. It never really happened with Chica. She just got slower and slower and finally stopped eating the last couple of days, but her personality was still intact. She still knew us and her pack mate, Maggie.
Avatar n tn I started smelling cigarette smoke back in April when I finished taking some heavy-duty pain meds for a bad back sprain. That is the only thing new or different that I introduced to my body. Now ever since then I will randomly smell smoke. My family thinks I m nuts but it is so real it is like someone sitting next to me smoking. I have mild seasonal allergies. I was prompted to get on the net and find out about "phantom smells" after watching and episode of "LOST".
Avatar n tn Pain in the left side of neck Throbbing sound in left ear Burning in neck Scraping sound back of throat I wouldn't worry about it.. August last year i hurt my neck at work but thought it would just go away, Until i heard this scraping sound coming from either my chest or throat. The noise is louder when I open my mouth, people say it is just my breath but I know it's not...
Avatar f tn It's pretty noticeable when I tilt my head back and I feel it when I touch my neck. It also feels uncomfortable when I touch it. Could this be a goiter/enlarged thyroid? I have thyroid antibodies (Tg and TPO) and a history of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. I have also been told that I have Hashimoto's but I'm not on any thyroid medication. My last thyroid test was done 3 months ago and it came back normal (TSH:1.7, FT4:1.2) after several months of being hypothyroid (TSH:3.8+, FT4:1-).
Avatar m tn Anything is possible, but I think it would be accompanied by these symptoms # Hoarseness or difficulty swallowing -Hoarseness - Trouble breathing - Swollen lymph nodes, especially in your neck - Pain in your throat or neck, sometimes spreading up to your ears The fever, night sweats and lump could also be a sign of something not so serious like an infection or something more serious like cancer I would think that your symptoms could point toward lymphoma or thyroid cancer.
