Question lump in throat

Hi i have a lump in my throat that feels like a ping pong ball,its sore to cough and sends a shooting pain into my chest. The lump is on the left side of my throat and is quite low down, it also seems to be causing pain in my left ear. Any ideas what it may be would be greatly appreciated��

Re: lump in throat

Hi, GMC8, Has your otolaryngologist ordered any tests, like laryngoscope, CT scan, etc.? I felt the same thing, & had all the above tests, as well as a PET scan. (Back in 2010) I'm finally going to an otolaryngologist that also deals w/head & neck surgery, as the "lump" extends from the base of my tongue to the R side of neck. I also have dysphasia (trouble swallowing,) which was helped by my GI doc, by stretching the area while doing a complete EGD (esophogial, gastro, & duodenal) procecedure, w/a colonoscopy. He did it primarily due to me having C Difficile Colitis. If I were you, I'd pursue the matter further, if you're still having a problem. Dee.
