Unhappy Problems with Throat

Hi all,
Hope someone can help me out with this. I have been having more recent problems with swallowing food. It will get stuck in my throat and I will usually have to take a drink to wash it down. Sometimes, its very hard to push it down with the drink.
Also, recently Ive been having like a mucus ball in my throat. I keep clearing it but it wont go away. Should I be extremely worried? I'm 26, I use to smoke, but havent in a few years. And never was a really heavy smoker. Help!
Suggestions? These problems are starting to annoy the heck outta me. LOL.
Thanks!!!

Re: Problems with Throat

What you have is called dysphagia. It can be caused by many things, from relatively minor to very serious. Please see a doctor.
