Globus Sensation: The "lump in the throat" sensation is often caused by inflammation of one or more parts of the throat, such as the larynx or hypopharynx, due to cricopharyngeal spasm, gastroesophageal reflux (gerd) ;, laryngopharyngeal reflux. There can also be a "pouch" in your esophagus (zenker's diverticulum) which can "catch" swallowed food. Barium swallow to check anatomy. Ent or GI depends on location.
