Rough popping feeling with pain inside of throat on left side near Adam's apple when swallowing/coughing. (Female, 17)?

Now, that's annoying: Since that feeling is near your Adam's apple (or in your case, your Eve's apple) it's probably not coming from your ear on that side. But it could be a cartilage near your apple. Best to have it examined by your regular doctor. Be sure to tell him/her if you have ever had trauma to that area. ...Read more

This is easily evaluated by a thyroid exam!

Hope this helps!

What would cause a clicking/popping sound when swallowing? Feels like my adam's apple is gettin stuck or something. I have no pain.

This is a surgeon that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the ear nose and throat. More specificially I would recommend someone who deals mostly with diseases of the throat. He may ask for specific tests such as an MRI and perhaps an esophogram. ...Read more

Your thyroid?: Hi. Women generally don't have a whole lot going for an Adam's apple. Are you sure what you're feeling isn't your thyroid?
