Tender lump above adams apple.

Wednesday I noticed a swollen lymph node under my jaw on the left side. I also had a feeling of fatigue and a cold sore on the left side of my mouth. I also got my flu shot the same day, but after the above symptoms were present.

Thursday I noticed a tender, swollen lump more to the middle of my throat. About a half inch up from my Adam's apple and slightly to the right of middle. I thought it was another swollen node till I did some research and don't think there is a node there. It's hard and tender when I press on it. Last night I got a very slight ear ache in my left ear, so slight I'm sure if even to list it.

Upon waking up the lump seems to have gotten slightly bigger. I know I should leave it alone but I cant seem to stop feeling it, so the growth may be due to that.

I don't have a fever.

I am the caregiver of my wife who has a brain injury and I don't have any help till Monday. So I don't want to expose her to the stuff in an ER if I don't need to.

Any ideas?

Re: Tender lump above adams apple.

You may be exposing her to something if you dont go to the doctor today. Could you have some type of virus happening? I dont know if this is the begining of a goiter or whats happening to you but I think its in your best interest to be seen either today or the begining of next week. Cant you hire a nurses aide to sit with your wife while you go to the doctor?
