I have a sore throat for couple weeks now. It feels like something hanging from inside esophagus like a skin tag, I feel like to swallow it. Advice pl?

Dysphagia any cause: Distinguish "transfer dysphagia" (problem moving food from mouth to top of esophagus) vs. "transit dysphagia" (problem getting food down esophagus & into stomach). Motility disorders, strictures, ulceration (pill-associated, viral, or more typically gerd), tumors (benign or not) must all be ruled out. Endoscopy offers the advantage over x-rays by permitting biopsy & removal of lesions, dilation. ...Read more

Hello, why would a skin tag (neck) have a discharge and bleed for well over an hour?

Unusual story: Skin tags usually have a limited blood supply and may bleed briefly when removed or injured. This commonly happens to neck skin tags when injured by necklaces. However bleeding is usually minimal unless you have a coagulopathy or this is some thin other than a skin tag. I have never seen a skin rage with discharge unless the base has become infected or abscesses. See a dermatologist for diagnosis. ...Read more
