In brief: Your

Your complaint, unfortunately, can not legitimately be addressed without a more thorough history and proper clinical exam as well as possible modified or standard barium swallow studies and?Or ct neck studies.
. A "lump in the throat" or globus type sensation associated with swallowing has been associated with multiple conditions which includes, but is not limited to, an elongated styloid process or calcified stylohyoid ligament (eagle's syndrome), cricopharyngeal achalasia (failure of appropriate timed relaxation of upper esophageal sphincter to food bolus passage), aberrant anatomy of laryngeal cartilage impinging on pharynx, etc. Occasionally, severe lpr (laryngopharyngeal reflux), worsened in patients with severe anxiety, can present as a globus sensation. Even less likely would be the possibility of neoplasia (benign or malignant tumors) causing this. Your best bet is to see an ENT for a thorough evaluation to put your mind at ease.
