In brief: Cancer is possible
If the mass is visible it needs to have biopsies done.
Some people have a sensation of a lump in the throat. This is called globus sensation. Most common cause of this sensation is felt to be secondary to acid reflux. With or without heartburn. Look up lprd for more info. But if you have a visible mass it should be evaluated.
