Hi
I am not sure what your question is.
Of course this needs an immediate exam.
If this is an increasing problem, in the ear now.
Acid reflux can cause this symptom.
A lump makes no sense, unless there is a cyst.
If it is swelling, it is dangerous.
I would have an exam immediately.
Let me know if you have a specific question.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

1) I have just seen bumps at the back of my toungue . I think that makes me feel there is something stuck in my throat . I can eat and drink properly but there is constant feeling of something stuck in the throat. Sometimes I feel that I am not able to swallow my siliva and it feels that the toungue is pulling towards the throat .
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
OK
The bumps are most likely swollen taste buds.
This can happen with acid reflux, and it might be the only symptom.
See your doctor this week. He/she might give you a trial of ant acid.

I hope this is not a symptom of cancer or ulcer . Because of my tooth ache I had ibrobruphen and paracetamol for nearly 10 days till my Dentist could be available to do root canal on my tooth .
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
It is not a symptom of cancer or ulcer.
It is a symptom of reflux.
However, your doctor needs to confirm this.

But I have heard reflux is when the food comes back to your mouth , I don't feel this . It's a constant feeling of something stuck in my throat . Pls reply to this and I don't think I will need any more clarification after this.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
What ever you heard, reflux can have no symptoms, one symptom, or many symptoms.
Your symptoms are consistent with reflux.
please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
