Common Questions and Answers about Lump voice box

Avatar f tn An enlarged thyroid can cause voice changes due to pressure on the laryngeal nerve, the nerve that goes to the larynx (voice box). Anything that reduces the enlargement (goiter) will improve the voice. Easier said than done...
Avatar n tn It is above where the collarbones meet and below my voice box. I am continually catching colds and now I am sure I can feel a lump there. I have a constant feeling of choking and feel the need to cough. I smoke and I am scared to death I have cancer. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to what this might be.
Avatar m tn The Doctor said that he nicked my nerves on my voice box during surgery and that is what he felt caused the voice loss. After regaining my voice I still lost/lose my voice a few days every month. Last year I felt a lump in the side of my neck, so I was sent to get a scan and it showed 20 % Thyroid Function, apparently it is growing back with a Cyst attached to it. I was then sent to see a Specialist at the Cancer Center to follow up, after finding out that it is not Cancer (Thank God!

Avatar n tn Hi, I am going to bet that you have the same thing my ENT diagnosed me with. It is a type of acid reflux that affects the throat and voice box, and the only symptom I have is a lump in my throat. So you can research it, the name is laryngopharyngeal reflux. I am on 40mg of Prilosec twice a day, an hour before breakfast and dinner. I still have the lump in my throat, so I am assuming at my next ENT appt he will be sending me for an endoscopy.
Avatar m tn Based on what you are describing, you might have inflammation of your superior laryngeal nerve which is the nerve that controls the muscle around your larynx (voice box) that controls pitch. An upper respiratory tract infection (cold) can cause the inflammation. You might need oral steroids or nerve medications like Lyrica to quiet down the inflammation. It can take up to 3 months for the inflammation to subside, but sometimes the problem is permanent.

1265027 tn?1284843551 You could try looking up LPRD. It's a type or reflux but affects the throat and voice box. I would think that stress may be a contributing factor. Elevating the head of your bed by putting books under that end may help. Medication may also help if it is reflux, etc.

Avatar n tn He also put a mirror somewhat down my throat and told me to make all these different kind of sounds. He said that there was some swelling on my voice box, he didn't seem too concerned about it. He also said that he really didn't think anything physical was there and to come back if the meds. don't work and have a barium swallow done. I have realized that my anxiety has subsided a lot since seeing the ENT which has also helped the reflux and feeling of lump in throat.
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.

215234 tn?1305146561 Hi, I'm hoping for some help with the following problem, as having just finished a course of antibiotics ( Azithromycin 500) for a suspected "lymph node infection" which apparently is pressing on the Trigeminal nerve. I am still finding the pain unbearable, & feel its only subsided slightly.
Avatar f tn I had severe GERD issues but had Nissen fundo surgery but it did not solve my ENT issues. In the meantime I've had an Otolaryngologist looked into it and he started me on meds (Endep and Diazapam) but I could not function on it and it did not work. I then had some botillium injections into the Chrico muscle and I consulted a Speech Pathologist that gave me exercises to do.
Avatar m tn My 5 months old puppy has a large voice box. It is really pronounced and feels like golf ball. Took her to vet but she could not find it properly as my dog is lively. She said it just voice box but I have not notice it to be that big before. Can it really be just part of her anatomy? She is ok with eating and drinking. But her lymph nodes behind the ears seems to be a bit swollen as well. She is adopted and came with red eyes. Her third eyelid is prononced a bit and gets really red. Not itchy.

Avatar f tn The connective tissue that forms between incision and voice box tends to break after 20 days from surgery, so after 20 days the voice can improve. In addition, in attempt to minimize connective tissue growing, some doctors are first closing the under skin layer, put stitches on that layer, then closing the skin and put stitches [or staples]on the skin.[making double “stitching’] This practice will result in less scarring tissue to build up and make the outside scar to heal faster.
Avatar m tn An enlarged thyroid (goiter) can press on your laryngeal nerve which is the nerve controlling you larynx (voice box). It causes hoarseness. I have a goiter, and before starting levo, I was hoarse all the time. I still am to some extent, but it's improved a lot on the levo.
Avatar f tn Total thyroidectomy 2/29/08. Voice still hoarse, lump still only letting me eat soft stuff. How much longer for this to go away. I'm frustrated. Surgeon tried to aspirate fluid from my neck, no luck. Going back today then endo on thurs. RAI starts about when? A little fatigue and cold feet right now, is it going to get worse? Ears are still plugged and pop a lot. Normal??? Thanks for any info.

1182559 tn?1305791588 I feel a couple of small lumps in my neck but I'm not sure if they are normal. Just the bumpiness of the voice box, larynx...etc.. I see the doctor on Thursday. I guess we will see.
Avatar m tn It causes difficulty swallowing, a feeling of mucus or thick phlegm in the throat, sensation of a ball in the throat (globus pharyngeus), chronic sore throat, chronic irritative cough, hoarseness, chronic throat clearing, frequent gagging and post nasal drip. Untreated LPR also may play a role in the development of cancer of the voice box. The prognosis for LPR is very good because most of the causes can be controlled if a healthy lifestyle is followed. Regards.
Avatar m tn Chronic cough. Difficulty swallowing. Sore throat. Red, swollen, or irritated voice box. Do see your Dr and try a GI Dr to get DX and right course of treatment for you. Keep us posted with your progress and what you find out.
Avatar n tn Throat cancer refers to cancerous tumors that develop in the throat, voice box or tonsils. After treatment, follow-up exams every few months during the first two years is done to allow your doctor to monitor recovery and check for a cancer recurrence. While such follow-up exams can increase anxiety around this time, it is recommended that you plan ahead by finding relaxing activities that can help redirect such fears.
Avatar f tn As far as what your doctor can do, I would start by simply looking at your voice box with either a flexible scope or a mirror. If he/she can't do that, and this persists, you need to see an Otolaryngologist.
