Next step is a: CT and/or ENT (ear nose throat) consultation. At your age the most common things are tonsil/ adenoids enlargement, thymoma, laryngeal polyp and thrush (fungal infection). Sometimes esophagitis from acid reflux can also cause similar feeling. Hope this helps and thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
