I have the flu-have been coughing for 3 days now. Everytime I swallow I feel like there's a huge lump in my throat-did I damage my vocal chords?
Not likely. . .: It's not likely that you damaged your vocal cord from coughing as long as you can talk & sing as you've always done. The throat is a fairly large area so it's difficult to figure out what's going on when you describe a lump w/o stating where on your throat. Most likely, you have a lump on one side of your jaw or the other, or perhaps one one side of the neck or the other, suggesting swollen glands. ...Read more

It is not uncommon for the palate to have different hues of color. If you still have concerns, have a throat examination by your physician or an otolaryngologist. ...Read more

Symptom after fluvac: There are similar symptoms after nasal flu vaccine.

All the best. ...Read more
