I think I have part of a popcorn seed stuck in my throat but can't seem to cough it up. What can I do?

In brief: See you doctor
Food particles can sometimes get stuck in the throat.
If this is the case and it has not resolved on its own, it may be time to see an ears, nose, and throat doctor. They can look with a thin scope and remove it. They can also confirm that it is not a foreign body but just inflammation or other cause.

Hello. I would recommend gargling with salt water until the husk from the popcorn passes.
If it persists, see your ENT doctor for an endoscopy.
