I seem to have a lump in my right sternocleidomastoid or else it is simply asymmetrical with the left. Sometimes it causes slight discomfort and other times it seems to exert a bit on pressure on my throat which gives me a kind of light choking feeling; like something is caught in my throat. About a year ago I had a swollen lymph node on the underside of my chin coupled with a persistent swollen right tonsil that seems to get worse when I smoke or drink caffeine. I'm 31 yrs old, in relatively good health; except for the smoking which I am in process of quitting. What could this lump in the sternocleidomastoid be? What other symptoms do I look for should it be cancer? (The internet is woefully bereft of any information on this pertaining to the area of the neck with which I am concerned.)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
