After a full day of waterskiing/tubing I have a lump in my throat that feels like a bone protruding from around my coller bone. While skiing I went down particularly hard onto the upper right of my chest.

Now I have a lump in the right side of my throat that I can feel constantly, when I swallow I feel a wierd, slightly painful sensation. When I press down on the area it doesn't feel like a bone, kind of like a lymph node.

I can eat with some strange pains.
I can breathe, but my right lung doesn't feel normal, kind of like it's not filling with as much air as it usually would.

The condition seems to be getting worse.

  • You really need to go to ur doctor for this to be examined, it sounds like u have been injured, maybe just bad bruising/tissue damage but best to get it check out as this could cause swelling & restrict ur airway. hope u feel better soon:)
