throat & swallowing seems to be worse.advice needed

For a couple of months I've been having feelings of some food stuck in my throat.I feel it less if I swallow on the right side, but often it is there every time I eat.I went to the gp who says not to focus on it & to come back in 6 Weeks if its not gone away.I have been very reassured by his attitude, but my throat is now sore for a week.should I wait for the 6 Weeks or go back sooner?
Id be very pleased to be wrong, but I can't deny I'm thinking it may be something serious.I don't drink or smoke so I'm not in the high risk group for throat cancer, but stranger things have happened.
thankyou for putting up with my whinge.
:-\

I have decided that the only course of action is to return to the doctor sooner.
I have an appointment tomorrow.

I think that is your best call. No sense in letting it become worse. My husband had a similar issue with his throat feeling like something was stuck in it, and it turned out his uvula was touching the back of his tongue. Every time he looked inside, the uvula rose up, so it was not noticed...Just something to consider
