Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat next to adam's apple

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 m tn Throat tenderness but not pain (more a feeling that something is there), constant need to clear throat but no coughing, dry feeling in throat, slight pain around jaw, ringing in ears, small round bump with warty temperance right next to uvula.
Avatar f tn From that point I got sick, lasted a weekend, had a mild sore throat, was tired, and at one point I coughed up some white mucus, which greatly relieved the feeling of the lump in my throat. Everything seemed to get better for a little while, but then the symptoms came back (and the swelling of the glands stayed, had never left). I went to the ENT, he felt everything and confirmed the gland in my neck was swollen (cervical node), and put a little tube through my nose to check my throat.

Avatar m tn If it is throat cancer, it is very treatable, but you have to remove the irritants to prevent it from returning. I lost my brother-in-law last year to throat cancer because he continued to partake in the offenders. Even after he had his voice box removed several years ago, he just wouldn't quit. He also had problems with his throat for 2 years prior to that surgery, so you're doing the right thing by watching all your symptoms and treating them immediately!
Avatar n tn gurgling/croaking noise coming up from the mid chest area, feeling like something is stuck in my throat, slightly to the right side of throat more so than the left, at first I had slight heartburn in the first month of the symptoms, but now just all the other symptoms. I've taken coffee right out of my diet, and I'm trying nexium as well, but don't think I really have reflux, it's just really weird, I think it's hard to not think about it, because you're constantly wishing it will go away!
Avatar n tn i have had a viral cold for three weeks four days ago i had a really sore throat when i woke up the next day i felt light headed and notice a lump under my adam's apple it moves up and down as i swallow
Avatar f tn I had my thyroid checked and it came back mostly OK (there is a nodule they want to follow up on in a year). I go to the doctor next Wednesday to follow up because the lump I feel is still there. It seems worse when I turn my head to the right. When I push on my neck it feels "squishy" - kind of like pressing on a beanie baby - just to the right of where the adam's apple would be.
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.
1118074 tn?1259024226 I have a cyst or nodule on my neck in front on adam's apple. It does move up and down when I swallow and I get choked on food easily. I have no history of Thyroid problems, it feels like there is something in my throat it is about 8mm. I am scheduled for ultrasound and swallow evaluation in next couple of days, any thing to relieve the stress I am feeling now would be grateful.
455126 tn?1212435798 I am stilll extremely uncomfortable and cannot raise my neck to high. Swallowing still feels like I have a lump in my throat and I feel I need to clear my throat a lot. The main discomfort is on the left side - the side they removed the nodule and the thyroid lobe from. There is no swelling other than a bit around the actual scar area but when I touch that area it is excrutiating! It feels as though they have tacked it too tight inside and I am hoping that this will get better too.
Avatar m tn For about the last month I've experienced a lump in throat feeling beneath my adam's apple. At first it was nothing major but began to become more annoying as time went on. I figured it could be from smoking cigarettes so I dropped those instantly. It didn't get better so I went to the doctor and he diagnosed me with reflux and gave me prilosec. After about a week and a half on the meds i started getting very sick to my stomach after meals and the throat sensation was still there.
Avatar m tn I had my tonsils removed and it is still happening. Yesterday I got a apple stuck in my throat I had to clear my throat just for it to come up very painful!!
Avatar m tn If it's down about the level of the Adam's Apple (which is where I thought you were referring to), then less probable. A node on or next to the SCM muscle and up near the jawline would indeed be reacting to an ear infection. Most ear infections are viral. But as always, any infection could be virus, bacteria, fungus, parasite.
Avatar n tn None of the normal sore throat rememdies help at all (soluable aspirin, lozenges, etc) because it doesn't feel like that kind of sore throat. It hurts to yawn or cough, and I can feel it when I move my head from side to side. It also hurts a bit (like swollen glands) up towards my ears. The pain comes and goes a bit, and does seem to be improving now. I've not had a fever, though just kind of hot and sweaty at times, and a bit edgy.
Avatar n tn I don't really know whether it affects fertility however I was advised by my endo that I would be able to have children if I chose to do so after asome time had passed to make sure the radioactive iodine I had after the surgery was well out of my sytem. My lump was also located right next to where an adam's apple would be in a guy...
494087 tn?1257796807 OMG, its so good to know that this happens to other people. I am getting the lump on my throat and my throat closing feeling more and more everyday. I,ve noticed that when I go to the movies, the loud sound triggers my anxiety. Last night it was really bad, I use VicksVapoRub and put some under my nose and it helps some. Please let me know if other methods have been working for you.
Avatar f tn If the lump is too low to be thyroid issue, I think your doctor is wise to do thyroid blood work and send your for a scan. The scan will tell exactly what's there. Could be a thyroid nodule or something there, but that may not be all bad either. What, if any, symptoms of thyroid issues do you have? When do you get the scan? Try not to worry.
Avatar n tn I pulled the muscle trying to open my mouth to bite a Hot Dog. It's weird because as the day goes on my muscle in my throat becomes weaker which makes it harder to swallow food. I 've had this for around three weeks and it doess't seem to be going away. Not sure what to do, I'll probably go see a doctor.
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 m tn That subsided, and now it feels like I have a lump in my neck, right between my jaw and adam's apple. It hurts if I push on it. It has been the same size for about a week now, (smaller than before). The masses behind my tonsils look exactly the same as the first day I discovered them. No bigger, no smaller. They don't have any white or yellow on them. They are kind of sore intermittently. They have never been really sore like strep. I have had a stuffy nose sparatically.
Avatar f tn i do notice when i eat onions and cucumber ect i get acid reflux although still im now paniced about als as im having constant muscle spasms everywhere not painful just all my body twitches even my eyes have started closing on there own i dont know if this is mostly because of stress of worrying or if they is actually something going on but i will deffo mention at my next appt about what you said i drink watered juice all day like apple and blackcurrant asoon as i touch orange or summer fruits
455126 tn?1212435798 I look as if I have an adam's apple right now but am assured that will go down as well. I also had throat pain from the tube down my throat but all in all it wasn't too awful. If we can go through childbirth than that pain didn't even compare!!! People tell me all the time they can't even tell---you can some---but when my head is straight you really can't even seem the scar. It is still a little red but that will fade in time and just blend right in with the wrinkles----ha.
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 n tn I noticed that one of my lymph nodes was swollen and very tender to the touch. It is the node located at the top of my neck, to the left and up of my adam's apple. I believe it is called the submandibular lymph node. The respiratory illness went away in around a week, but 2 months later, the lump remains.
Avatar f tn I found a lump in my throat a few weeks ago, I had an MRI of the soft tissues of the neck and the impression read as follows.... There are two level 3 lymph nodes abutting the posterior aspect and inferior aspect of the right submandibular gland measuring up to 1.2 cm in diameter. This is abnormal by size criteria.
Avatar m tn I'd be surprised if insurance would pay for an FNA and the associated pathology. So next, the OCD can actually be put to good use by plunging in to learn about the immune system. That will take a long time, especially since it is not yet well understood. So not all evidence will be high grade, though we can avoid any flighty things. I'd look for a unifying theory for all of your symptoms that is immune based. E.g., you can find references to histamine and anxiety.
