How To Get Rid Of A Lump In The Upper Throat?
Hello doctor! Just now I felt a lump in the top of my throat. The check I checked was actually there and when touched it felt painful and also a little hard. When I swallowed it hurt. And it’s right behind my uvula. What disease do I actually have? Please help
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Sharp edges of food
Abnormal tissue growth
Fungal, bacterial or viral infections
Cysts or the formation of fluid-filled sacs
Some of these conditions are actually harmless and can disappear by themselves over time. But if it already feels very disturbing for you, our advice should be checked by an ENT doctor, so that it can be seen and observed directly using a special tool, as well as being matched with your medical history. With a combination of history and direct physical examination, the diagnosis is easier to establish and the handling can be more precise.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, no need to play around or touch the lump, and because the reason is still unclear, there is no specific thing you can do. Enough consumption of soft foods to avoid injury when the lump is pricked, and multiply the consumption of warm water. So, hopefully answering your question.
