Avatar n tn For the past year or so i have had this small lump in the right side of my throat, almost where my lymphnodes are. I had never had strep throat until about 2 years ago, and i had it twice in that one year really bad. The lump is not painful in any way, the only way i would ever know it was there is if i rub my hand over that area, its not even visibly noticible. I went to the doctor about it and he told me that i had a swollen salivary gland.
Avatar f tn I finished those off and lost my voice completely and the lump in my throat never changed. So they then put me on Amoxicillin 500mg three times a day. I finished those off, the lump is still there. They sent me for blood work. I apparently have anemia. So they sent me for another set to see if I was allergic to any foods or what not for the anemia. The doctor I am seeing is sending me to do a Barium Swallow. Other then that they won't be back until the 5th of January.
Avatar n tn It feels hard to swallow and yawn, also feels irregular when i stretch in certain ways. Before this lump, there was a very tiny lump right behind the right side of my ear, which only took 3-5 days to dissapear. My mother suffers from goitre and i am a regular smoker. I have stopped with estelle-35 (contraceptive pill) about two weeks ago. Please help. =) Thanks!
Avatar f tn For about a week now I have had a lump in the throat sensation. I definitely suffer from anxiety. I have never been diagnosed but I know I have it. This 'lump sensation' has gone from moving around and feeling big to feeling reasonably small and only on one side. I recently had a cold with coughing, running nose, coughing up phelgm. I've noticed the past couple days I'll have a slight crackle in my right ear, and it kind of effects the lump. My worry (surprise!) is that it is not anxiety.
Avatar n tn The thyroid gland may also produce a lump, multiple lumps, or swelling in the neck as a result of thyroid disease or malignancy. Most cancers of the thyroid gland are extremely slow growing and often curable by surgery even if they have been present for several years.
Avatar n tn There's a lump there that really hurts and several lumps around my neck and throat. I get the pain in my ear and in part of the lower face too and lose hearing now and then in my right ear when my gland hurts. But it's coming from my gland. I've had really bad fatigue, REALLY bad, as in nearly fall over in the street bad. What could be the problem? I've seen my GP who refered me to a ENT who took a MRI of my ears... even though it was my gland that was hurting... Which took FOREVER to sort out.
Avatar n tn Hi. I have had a long standing problem with a feeling that I have a lump in my throat - choking sensation, like when you are holding back crying. I have always assumed it was anxiety/stress and have been prescribed xanax for when it is really bad. This becomes constant when I am stressed out. I very seldom take xanax because of the addiction proponent. I also have had a hiatal hernia for many years and take nexium. I have heard that acid reflux could also be a cause as well as my thyroid gland.
Avatar m tn You might consider going to the chiropractor, and/or laying down with a small towel roll behind your neck, creating an better arch in your neck. (lay on your back). Sometimes I feel like I have lump in my throat that I should swallow. Hope this goes away for you.
647554 tn?1227120082 I found a large lump on the right hand side of my neck, my voice has been hoarse for last year or so and I've got a feeling that something is stuck in my throat all the time. My doctor said I've got a growth in my thyroid gland and I've to go for an ultrasound on Tuesday. Iam worried about all this, am I just being silly or should I be concerned? Please help.
Avatar n tn nothing huge, just are about the size of two peas at the back of my mouth. Also, the glands in my neck are always enlarged, and there is a small lump on the underside of my chin towards my neck, slightly to the right hand side of my throat. This is about the size of a pea and can be defined visually when I stretch my neck to look upwards. Is this lump underneath ym chin just another swollen gland?
Avatar n tn Went to first ENT and he prescribed acid reflux medication, which I took for a month without change in throat lump sensation. Went to Gastroenerologist and she didn't think I had gerd. She took CT scan to hospital for further analysis and determined I had a throat cyst. Went to her recommended ENT and he performed surgery and removed small throat cyst and viral wart. Still feeling persists. I had an MRI but results aren't back yet.
Avatar n tn This might be from hypothyroidism. It causes a lump in the throat from the enlarged thyroid gland, and it can cause a lot of other systemic problems as well, such as slowing of the digestive tract. Did you ever have any bloodwork done? The test for thyroid hormones is really simple - I just had it done myself.
Avatar n tn I discovered a lump in my throat on the right side about an inch and a half down, and about a half an inch to the right from my chin. At the dentist about a year ago I had him feel it and he said it was nothing to worry about and it should go away (he showed me that he had some also that had been in his throat for awhile). But it has been about a year and the lump to the best of my knowledge hasn't gotten any bigger or smaller, neither does it feel like it has shifted positions.
Avatar f tn I would think it'd have to very large to be noticed both in and outside your throat. In the middle of the back my throat, I have an odd shaped, hard bump too. My doctor is aware and I did have my tonsils taken out and sure my ENT saw it. Neither seemed concerned. It wouldn't be your tonsils, if at the back of your throat. Maybe the doc was meaning lymph node. I can say that mine has been there over a year.
Avatar m tn Over the last week I have had a feeling of a lump in my throat on the left side in the back above my Addams apple and just below my jaw. There appears to be ever so slight swelling on the left side... But my lymph nodes don't feel swollen anywhere else and the appears to a slight bulge in the area of concern on my neck. It doesn't hurt to swallow. I don't have a fever or sore throat, or changes in weight or appetite. I just have this lump feeling. I am otherwise in good health.
Avatar f tn For those of you who have that lump in the throat feeling or swallowing difficulties, could you describe what it feels like? Does it feel like there is phlem in your throat or just a lump/swelling feeling? I have a .08 nodule and a slightly enlarged thyroid. I feel like I have a swollen throat/neck but I also feel like there's phlem (sorry .... gross, I know!). I've been told it's probably Gerd but I have my doubts.
Avatar n tn On a side note, the past few weeks (starting a 2 weeks before noticing this back lump) I have had a sore area in my throat (not a sore throat!, no pain swallowing, but an irregular feeling like a lump or abrasion) WITH what seemed to be salivary gland pain, two (first tender, then hard) lymph glands in neck, and pain/throb in armpit, groin, and femoral region (no noticed lumps except swollen pain in groin while on Augmentin) and ear pain.
Avatar f tn This can be one of the GERD sensations and symptoms. It's not always heartburn as the esophagus is long and can send some non-descript feelings along its length when it's irritated such as pain, lump in throat, tightness, nausea, "flutter," etc. Drugs and food can affect the sphincter and allow stomach acid to backflow from the stomach to irritate the lower esophagus.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering from fatigue and chronic migraines for about 6 months, and today at the doctor he discovered a lump in my throat. He is sending me to get an ultrasound to see if I have an inflamed thyroid gland, which just means that it is producing too much of the hormone thyroxine. I am also very scared. I would like to know the outcome of your diagnosis, so any thing you can say is well appreciated.
Avatar f tn I mentioned this to my dentist and he suspects a blockage in my salivary gland and recommended I see a specialist, and within the past week I've begun having pain in my jaw (only in the right) and a sore throat (only on the right side of my throat). I was wondering if this could possibly be lymphoma rather than a blocked salivary gland? Or if someone could recommend something to mention to the specialist (my appointment is this thursday).
