Re: Bad Throat Sensation

It's always a good idea to get checked if there's something that you think isn't feeling right, but some of you might be worried unnecessarily.

A 'lump in the throat' sensation can be esophageal or laryngeal cancer (the latter isn't likely if you aren't extremely hoarse), but it could also be:

1. GERD/LPR can cause a 'lump' sensation because it causes narrowing of the esophagus, among other things.

2. If you are also hoarse, a nodule or cyst or even swelling on one of your vocal cords could cause the problem, as could muscle tension in your throat.

3. A benign papilloma or polyp could be the culprit.

Definitely get it checked, but don't worry too much until you have a diagnosis! :)
