Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
I am an ear, nose and throat specialist and can help you.
Can you send me the picture of it?
Do you have symptoms like nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, fluid trickling in throat, cough, sore throat etc?
i have a small lump on back of my throat has been there for two years maybe longer no change in size and no symptoms
yes two mins
some times congested in the mornings and clear throat on way to work fair bit
Do you have acid reflux?
not that i know of
Thanks a lot for your input.
The picture has helped me a lot.
It is a lymphatic nodule enlarged due to some sort of irritation.
In your case this irritation seems to be from your sinuses.
Chronic sinus infection can lead to enlargment of such nodules.
would this possible over a two year period and do i need to take any action.
If you are worried about anything like cancer, i would like to reassure you with 100% confidence that cancer is out of question because cancerous lesions don't present like this, they are associated with neck swellings and they can't stay in a same size for two years as oral cancers are fast growing.
Yes it is fairly possible.
You need to see an ENT and he can either treat it with medicines or he can just cauterize it in office.
There is nothing to be stressed for sure.
I give you my words for this :)
