Avatar f tn Recently I found a small soft lump in my throat under my chin at my jaw line. I have had a sore throat and then I notice the lump. My sore throat went away but the lump is still there. Sometimes I have pain in my throat near the lump but it only lasts a second and then goes away. It's on the right side of my face, nothing on the left. Should I be alarms or does it just sound like swollen lymph node?? Help!!

Avatar f tn Ive had a terrible sore throat for the last week, running nose, earache at one point, lost my voice. I actually was feeling better today till i noticed a very sore lump in my tongue near the tip, bout the size of a pea, deep in the tongue tissue.
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 n tn I have recently found a lump in my throat that was very sore to touch. I look like it is right next to where my tonsils are just to the right side of tonsils. When I noticed it the size appeared to be like that of a gumball (bigger ones). A few days after I discovered it the size had decreased and soreness is gone, but the lump is still there. Any suggestions or thoughts on this would be appreciated.
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. You may need to undergo endoscopic evaluation which will help to diagnose acid-reflux disease and as well as esophageal pathology.

Avatar n tn Sometimes it really bothers me. Sometimes it goes away. Sometimes my throat feels swollen or like there is a lump in my throat. Should I be concerned? Could this be allergies?
Avatar n tn Soon after I worsened and this tenderness had turned to a sore throat and had moved to the left side of my throat. I had a fever and a terrible headache for two days. My neck and jaw started to feel tight and tender as well. I examined my throat and discovered a weird ball like lump on the left side of my throat. I went to my local doctor and he prescribed me with ZPAK anti-biotics for what he called a sinus infection. I began to feel better shortly after.
696569 tn?1276535119 In August and July, I got strep throat and then mononucleosis (my doctors think...), which kicked my butt pretty bad - exhaustion, fevers, and my throat so swollen and sore I could not speak for 2 weeks. My throat is healing, very slowly, but now I have noticed a lump in the back of my throat. When I open my mouth, you can see, on the left side back wall of my throat, a walnut-sized lump pressing against the skin. Some times the lump seems smaller, other times it seems bigger.
Avatar f tn Its 2 weeks since my op and I still have a very sore throat but the lump in my throat feeling is very prominent again! The notes from my op said Globus and dysphagia of my left tonsil. He ruled out lymphoma and throat cancer. Is this all in my head coz its really getting me down??
Avatar n tn Had two scopes done, first found an insignificant hiatal hernia, second found nothing at all. For the past month I feel as though there is a lump in my throat. I get up in the moring feeling fine, within an hour the lump is there, it usually last until early afternoon. By the time I go to bed it is gone. I have been sleeping fine and not walking up with a sore throat, etc. I do not burp after eating or have heartburn or chest pains.....any idea of the cause of this lump?
801481 tn?1237766433 But recently, just a few days ago, I woke up with a large, hard lump in my throat. It is located in the center of my throat..maybe a little to the right, and it's up near the bottom of my chin. When I first noticed it it was very large and you could see it sticking out underneath my chin with my head straight forward. I think it's gone down a little in size now you can only see it when I tilt my head back. This lump has caused my sore throat to actually be painful.
Avatar n tn It was when my lump became bigger in 5 months since I first found out - it was 4 x 3 cm. . My sore throat was on and off and my voice became affected a little but my Dr said it has nothing to do with my thyroid problem. Surprisingly,my on/off sore throat gone after surgery ( I removed only my left thy). About my voice, I cannot singing or speaking in high tone anymore and sometimes I feel exhausted when talking in crowd.
Avatar m tn I have been having a pain in my throat that is sore and uncomfortable on my left upper side of my throat, directly above that I have a sore on the ruff of my mouth and now I have tiny black spots (3) on my gums/cheeks. It is extremly painful to eat or swallow. About a year ago I had 3 large sores the size of a nickle in my mouth that went away. I do not have insurance and am not sure who to see and am limited on funds. Should I seek a Dr and if so who?
Avatar f tn After a couple days my throat really began to hurt and I looked at the back of my throat in the mirror and saw some swelling and red bumps, plus a lot of post nasal drip. I was worried it may be strep but almost everything I have seen online tells me it is not strep. No it is a week later and I am feeling much better. I still have some post nasal drip when I wake up. The only thing that is really bothering me is my throat.

Avatar n tn t feeling nausious anymore but thatI had really bad gas and that the lump in throat feeling was still there along with a sore throat. He said it sounded more like a stomach broblem than anything serious and put me on prilosec for one month. The lump feeling in my throat has went away almost completely and the sore throat is almost gone. That was around a week ago. Also around a week ago I started noticing a small amount of blood in the morning coming from my throat.
Avatar n tn I had surgery 2 years ago and was left with a feeling of a lump in my throat. I occasionally suffer from sore throat and it is sometimes difficult to breath. I have been to 2 doctors who say there is a little swelling, but nothing can be done. I'm not even sure it's related to the surgery. In the past week I have also had the sensation of burning tongue and cold burning in my throat. What can this be and are the symptoms even related?
Avatar f tn I have a lump at the under side of mouth. between my chin and throat. my jaw is sore and i feel like i have a lump in my throat when i swallow.
Avatar f tn s below Adams apple in that little hole above the sternum I feel like my voice is raspy and I need to clear my throat my doctor just looked with a light in my mouth said he say nothing but it's so deep down a light can't see it he associated it with all the stress that has been going on in my life at once I feel the lump there when swallowing sometimes worse than others it's not painful it's just irritable I don't really have a sore throat all day only in the mornings my ears
Avatar n tn I have had a lump in my throat to the left and slight above my adams apple. It has beenthere for about a month, maybe longer. At this point, ive started to dismiss the fact that its just a swollen lymph node. I am a 25 year old non smoking male so the idea that its a tumor seems unlikely. Any ideas? no pain, no swelling, sore throat, anything associated with this, but it still worries me a bit.
Avatar f tn I do have a few other silent reflux symptoms like clearing throat, dry cough and recently light sore or scratchy throat, but from what I've read the "lump" from silent reflux doesn't go away after swallowing. It does seem to get a little better after taking omeprazole 20, but it is still happening. I read a lot of people with a lump but mine isn't a lump. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn Hi - I'm a 34 year old healthy female. I have had the feeling of a lump in my throat for 3 weeks now that seems to be getting worse. It is worse at night than it is in the morning - in fact, in the morning it's not even there. 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.
Avatar n tn I was left with a lump in my throat and problems swallowing. The antibiotics cleared up the infection but the problem swallowing would still be there. It was bad most days with the occasional good day. No problem swallowing when drinking water... Could eat OK but food did get stuck.. Based on the information in this Website. I told my Doctor I thought I had acid coming up from my stomach.
Avatar n tn m feeling a bit better but I still have the lump feeling in my throat and really bad gas and bloating with a sore throat. It turns out that the cbc showed a viral infection. the doctor said that my lump feeling and gas sounded more like stomach problems than anything serious so he told me to take prilosec for a month. That was about a week ago. I have been taking prilosec with gaviscon and I feel better.
