What Is A Lump In Your Throat
The Glottis: When you get emotional, muscles in your throat open to allow plenty of air. The glottis - the muscle which controls the opening of your throat gets big to allow air into your lungs. If you try to swallow while you are crying, the muscles for swallowing fight against the muscles for crying, and this tug-of-war over the glottis feels like a lump.
Many possible causes: This is a symptom with many possible causes: 1. there is some anatomic/disease issue causing the sensation. An office procedure with a flexible scope will visualize it. 2. a cognition found with general anxiety [globus hystericus] 3. I had a patient with Barrett's esophagitis that also complained of a sensation of a lump in his throat.
See DR.: See doctor to examine throat and tonsil area. Do not delay since it can affect the airway also.
Throat lump (globus): This is a general term describing a symptom, not a disease/disorder. The medical description is globus sensation. It can occur by simply crying (temporary), but if persistent, can indicate something more concerning like esophageal reflux, muscle spasm, iron deficiency, or even a mass.
I have a lump in throat sensation that happens regularly this past month. What can cause this feeling?
Globus sensation: The sensation of having a lump in one's throat is called globus sensation. This is generally caused by inflammation in the throat, pharynx or larynx. The inflammation could be due to acid reflux or gerd. You can also have spasm which can cause this sensation. Sometimes this could result from anxiety disorder or depression. May also be due to an anatomic problem with larynx or vocal cords.See 1 more doctor answer

The mind-body is one: The mind-body is one seamless energy system. Emotions can trigger physical responses. A lump in the throat is not an unusual response to sadness.
See your doctor: You sould see your doctor. This lump needs to be palpated by your doctor and he/she needs to be able to put the rest of your symptoms in perspective.
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.
Acdf: It is very normal to feel a lump in the throat after a ACDF surgery especially for the first few weeks. This should improve with time.See 1 more doctor answer
Throat lump: It can be associated with acid reflux and I see that you have heartburn and you smoke, which does not help it. The lump may also be from post nasal drip if you have nasal allergies. I will bet on acid reflux, you need to change your diet and stop smoking and maybe take some otc antacids.See 1 more doctor answer
Could be: Any lump could be a tumor, it would have to be looked at to know for sure.
Yes: Come medications can cause this by causing swelling, thickening secretions, or drying out the throat. If you have this, check with your doctor to see if you should continue or change to something else.
LPR: Laryngopharygeal reflux is when a small amount of acid comes up into the throat and irritates it. It is a common cause of dry tickle cough, chronic sore throat, lump in the the throat, post nasal drip, phlegm in the throat, and throat clearing. It is also a contributing factor to ear eustachian tube and sinus problems. It responds well to proton pump inhibitor rx. Discuss with your ent.
Could what feels like the lump you get in your throat when you get choked up be acid reflux? Feels like that just much stronger, goes to chest too
Chest?: This may be gerd, but I would be more concerned about the possibility of angina or coronary artery, especially if you happen to be a smoker or have a family history of cad. Chest pain is cardiac until proven otherwise. If this persists or recurs, get to the nearest emergency department immediately.
