Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service. This is most likely due to the inflammation at the back of his throat or the upper part of the esophagus.Acid reflux causes this most commonly.Treatment is simple with acid blockers like Omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for 4 to 6 weeks.Other possibilities include esophageal ring formation, polyp, or rarely tumor.Also enlarged tonsils from bacterial infection can cause this.Modified barium swallow study can be ordered if omeprazole does not help in 4 weeks.Please discuss with his GP also.He should eat soft consistency diet for now. Best wishes, It was my pleasure to help you today.
