i started to feel a lump in my throat about a week ago and of course my first prediction was cancer. i don't have swollen glands and the lump feels like its just to the side of my throat (right side). have you noticed that when you think about it, it feels much worse, but if you don't think about it, you don't feel it?! i also have heatburn. i smoke..but i'm trying so hard to quit..i think this is a sign.
i went to the doctors today..i had a blood test to see if anything is wrong with my thyroid. the doctor says that it could just be stress, i've read on the internet that this can be a sign of anxiety.
so my advice is to go to the doctors..to put your mind at ease.
good luck everyone!
