Good morning Juway, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints about the lump in the throat can occur due to several possibilities, including the presence of inflammation of the throat or esophagus due to bacterial or viral infections, acute respiratory infections, the impact of dry air, and injury to the upper digestive tract due to sharp food edges. These possibilities are generally harmless, but they cannot be confirmed without direct examination.
Our advice, judging that the complaint is not too disturbing and epidemic corona virus, you do not need to consult a doctor directly. You only need to maintain endurance by sufficient rest and increase consumption of warm water. Also avoid smoking and reduce time in an air-conditioned room. You can also consume mint candy to increase the sensation of relief in the throat.
But if the complaint worsens, for example accompanied by fever, cough, especially shortness, immediately consult the nearest general practitioner, may be in a health center or hospital. So, hopefully answering your question.
