Lump in throat: Lump in throat can be due to: foreign body (did you swallow something?), virus (cold: start Cold eeze asap if feel coming down with cold; mono); bacterial infection (if very painful, PCP can check from strep), tumor (benin or malignant less common depending on risk factors). Your PCP can help determine cause if persists. Continue drinking plenty of water, take Cold eeze if feels like cold, Vit D
