Post Lump found on throat, no other symptoms!

Hello there.

Last night I discovered a small lump on the right hand side of my throat. It didnt hurt until i started rubbing it and picking at it.

I am cancer-phobic but I do not have any other symptoms of throat cancer.
I plan to see a doctor today but am extremely worried.

Could anyone please let me know what other causes this might be?
For example I have heard that sometimes parathyroid glands swell up - or lymph glads have a cyst.

Kind regards
Matt

There are many things it could be and your doctor is the best to discuss it with. I had a lump in my neck that was not sore but I noticed it when I put my seatbelt on - it seemed to be an irritant right at that spot.
After a number of tests including needle aspiration of the lump (turns out there were two), I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. I did have surgery and followup radioactive idodine. But all along the way, the vast majority of the kind of lumps I had are very often benign. In any case, it's best to see the doctor -- hope yours is determined to be benign!
