Otolaryngologist: Have a thorough examination by an Otolaryngologist. The specks are probably tonsillar stones which are old food and other debris. They are usually insignificant. Anxiety can cause a sensation of a lump in the throat. I doubt that the vein is pathological. For peace of mind an examination by a throat specialist will be helpful.
