Lymph node: This may well be an enlarged lymph node responding to the infection, but without seeing it this would only be a guess. The best thing for you to do is to let a doctor take a look at this and make sure it is not an abscess, a tumor, or something else severe. Good luck. ...Read more

Can being sick with a cough cause a lump in throat?

Can being sick with a cough cause a lump in throat?

Yes: A cough is likely a part of an upper respiratory tract infection, probably viral in nature. If the lump is inside your throat this could also be a strep tonsil infection. I would first recommend rest, plenty of fluids and you can also try gargling with salt water. If you get worse or not much better in a few days, I would seek medical advice. All the best. ...Read more

I've been on prilosec for a while as well as zoloft (sertraline).  Still have lump in throat feeling and now a dry mouth.  ?

Talk to doctor: I presume your doctor was treated you for laryngopharyngeal reflux. Assuming that you are taking Prilosec correctly (before breakfast) , you may need to take it before dinner as well but should not do so until you have talked to your doctor. If the problem persists, see an ENT doctor. ...Read more
