Lump in throat meaning

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat meaning


Avatar m tn Hi, For the past day or so I have what feels like a lump in my throat. It is worse when eating. Whenever I eat something I will get a pain in my throat that will travel down to my stomach. I also feel like it is hard to swallow food. I went to see my dr about this and she thought it may be my thyroid but tests were negative. I have also had 3 episodes in the past 5 months where I get a pain in my abdomen (right about the naval area) which is always followed by nausea and vomitting.
Avatar m tn do y'all ever feel like there is a lump in your throat when swallowing? I do not have a goiter...but it just feels like I am feeling my food go down...its not painful. My initial testing was TSH 8.29 (now it is down to 2.9) T4 free 1.2 T3 uptake 32 TPA 520 How long does it take for this nightmare to get better? I know we all want to feel better "instantly"! (and I pray that for everyone!
Avatar n tn My wife had the feeling of a lump in her throat and it got to where she could feel it. It turned out she had a benign groth on her thyroid. They removed one half of her thyroid. That was about 10 years ago. She now says she can feel the lump again and it sometimes seems to make it hard for her to swallow and she says it feels like it is cutting off he windpipe at times. I feel sure your doctors have looked at this but if not, I would ask.
Avatar n tn Basically, this started a month or so into going to university. Ill be the first to admit im a shy boy and i found the lecture rooms and the amount of people at uni compared to school a bit daunting. However, about 2 months ago i got a sensation of a "lump in my throat"... it does not hurt and it does not obstuct my breathing or eating/drinking in any way that i can think off. its just really anoying and it wont go away.
Avatar n tn I had a lump in my throat as a baby which would bleed and pus would come out of It eventually it just became a scar never knew what it was or why I got it just wondering if anyone knows or had this as well
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 is generally considered the sensation of a lump in the throat or of something stuck without there being a problem. If there really is an underlying problem, the same term could be used, but without the "hystericus" with it, I guess. (I HATE the term hystericus for anything!) Action tremors are the tremors appearing when someone is performing an action. It doesn't have to be movement. I amy be just the holding of a position requiring sustained muscle contraction.
Avatar f tn I am not much of an expert but I to have that feeling at times that something is hanging in my throat I have had the scope down my throat with showed I have a mild case of esophegitis which they prescribed me carafate and dexilant however in my case I canoot get solid food to pass down normally as it should and it causes me axiety with the feeling of food being stuck and a pressure feeling above my chest that goes away after a while.
Avatar n tn At the worst times it feels like there is a lump in my throat and pressure in my chest and I also get really painful hiccups sometimes, just one or two at a time. Another Dr. said it was just stress and honestly I think he thought I was making it up because it wasnt happening while I was in his office which wasnt helpful! The one time I want the gurgles... If anyone knows of anythign that actually works I would love to hear it!
Avatar f tn 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. Post nasal drip due to sinusitis can also cause such sensations. Do not worry, it is a self limiting condition and will recover in a week.
Avatar f tn If the lump in your throat or throat tightness show up again (or dry coughing or excessive mucus in your throat for no apparent reason), get yourself to a doc, fast. IMPORTANT: You'll want to discuss all of this with your primary care physician before you do anything else, however, as what you're displaying may be signs of something more serious, particularly because of the smoking. (This isn't too likely, however. Still, I wouldn't take any chances.
Avatar f tn Hi. For a month now, I've had this feeling of something being stuck in my throat, or as if there is a lump or something there. I have been to an ear, nose, throat specialist twice. He put me on Augmentin for 10 days, plus a precscription antacid. He thought I had "Silent Reflux".......meaning I have no heartburn or any other symptoms, but that the acid was skipping my stomach and going to my throat, basically. This did not work. The next appt.

Avatar n tn Unless 'thyroiditis caused by something other disease' counts as a real diagnosis, I still have no idea where this lump in my throat came from, unfortunately.
Avatar n tn I kind of forgot about it until the other night I was helping my son in the bath and noticed the lump was still there? It seems to move a little and feels kind of hard but squishy. How can I be sure this isn't a sign of Cancer. I am going to take him back to the doctors. He hasn't been sick lately and acts normal. Help I can't help to think the worst. The internet has me thinking that way.

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 After some searching, I realized that small food particles have been somehow getting stuck somewhere in the back of my throat after I swallow. I did some throat-tensing exercises and began to push the food particles back up, and lo and behold I discovered what was basically a tonsil stone....same consistency and horrible smell resulting from small food particles and bacteria. So, can develop what is technically a tonsil stone even without your tonsils....
Avatar n tn My throat is now showing swelling around the glands under the jaw, gettin intermittent throat and mouth pains, feeling of a lump in the throat (which I think is mucous coming down). The swelling isn't particularly painful, more uncomfortable. What really gets me is I've had two week long courses of different antibiotics, and while the pain that I originally had has subsided, the other symptoms haven't subsided. Stuff to worry about?
Avatar n tn I try coughing or drinking but the throat noise does not go away or even change it. I can tell it is not in my lungs, but in my throat. I can breathe shallow and minimize the noise but I feel out of breath then. My daughters say this wheeze is not my snore.They say I wheeze before the snore on intake and then exhale. I hear the noise during the day but I really have to listen to hear it as there is always too much back ground noise.
Avatar m tn I don’t know if that was his bedside manner to try and stop me worrying for the next 6-8 weeks but he did seem unconcerned and his views seems consistent with the interweb (I should not have googled it I know but I could not help it) As I did not even look for the lump in the intervening 6 weeks for all I know it could have gone down and come back up (I did catch a bug off my daughter a couple of weeks ago around the time I noticed it again) but I have to assume it has been there the whole ti
522336 tn?1215884409 Then theres the question of whether or not that painless growing lump could be cancerous and whether or not an ear nose and throat doctor might be better equipped to determine that before whipping out the scalpel. Hey, I'm not rich...If I have to spend $1,000 I'd really rather not blow it all on a single test that STILL WON'T TELL ME if the thing is cancerous or pay towards the cost of getting it out of my mouth. Anyway...
Avatar m tn Hi i am a 20 year old guy who for the past 1.5 roughly years have been bothered by a lump on the bottom lip.
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 f tn Hello flubber123, Thank you for your response, and I'm sorry for the struggle your in. Firstly, the symptoms you mentioned don't really lean towards any specific condition. But what really helps narrow down the possible causes is your medical history. And before I explain, I'd just like to point out that measuring your temperature from your ears can commonly result in a different temperature in one than the other for a number of reasons.
Avatar n tn I was reading all the post and seen that a warm cloth would help with the pain of the lump in my bikini area. As I read on further I decided to try the warm cloth, i added epson salts to the water and used the wash cloth as a compress. After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump.
Avatar m tn Now it's back and I also relized that I have a small lump close to my saliva gland (right side). It's a small (peas sized) lump and it's softer. My ear and chin (throat up to ear area) sometimes ache and hurt and I cough in different times meaning at no specific time of the day, the cough gets worse. I've visited an ENT specialist and he couldn't find anything. I went to my family doctor and he couldn't find anything.
Avatar f tn I have recently been asked whether I would consider hypnotherapy - but I am reluctant to be honest as this suggests they think its all in my head!!! Annoying! The problem all started when I felt a lump in my throat whilst swallowing - went to ENT and they put a camera down my nose. They saw nothing wrong. Anyway a few days went by and the lump feeling disappeared but left me with these bubble feeling and dry/hot sensation in my mouth which is constant.
