Hi Kiki,


Foreign matter (corpus alienum) stuck in the throat can be caused by a variety of things but is often caused by food. Complaints arising from foreign bodies in the throat can vary depending on the type, size and position of the foreign object, but generally cause the following complaints:

Difficult / painful swallowing
Discomfort in the chest
Hypersalivation or increased saliva production
Nausea or vomiting
Hard to breath

If the complaints that arise are not too heavy and foreign objects that can still be digested (foodstuffs) can be tried by consuming soft food in a compacted form that is swallowed directly, keep in mind that the size of the food must not be too large but enough to help encourage foreign objects swallowed.


However, if a foreign object is dangerous or cannot be digested, it is necessary to do an oesophagoscopic and cunam procedure for the removal of a foreign object, if necessary, the doctor can also recommend an X-ray examination to ascertain the position of the foreign object. Furthermore, if the procedure is not possible, surgical procedures can be recommended. Related to this, you should consult directly with the ENT specialist in order to get treatment that suits your condition.
