Strange lump in the throat

Hi there ive noticed this strange lump in the back of my throat that my tongue can touch. I suffer from anxiety and hypochondria but I've had 3 different doctors look in my throat with a light including a ent. I dont have a sore throat, trouble swallowing, pain in the throat or cold symtoms, just the lump. I'm 20, Could this be cancer?

Hey, have you felt your glands do they feel swollen cuz they would probably be swollen if any infection. Cathy
