difficult to say if this is an enlarged tonsil, adenoid or growth without an examination. I suggest a thorough exam and evaluation.

It is likely an infection of the throat or nasal cavity producing a posterior nasal drip. Allergic posterior nasal drips also possible. Try over the counter anti-histamines for a few days, if it doesn`t get better go to the Dr.

It is important for you to consult with an ENT doctor to assess, what if anything the lump in your throat is. It could be a post nasal drip, enlarged tonsil to a tumor or growth which is more serious. Do it asap.
