Couldn't find what you looking for?


I found a lump or knot in the front of my throat. It is about the size of a ping pong ball. It is right under my chin. I have had difficulty swallowing, but the pain hasn't been to bad. Please let me know what you think that this might be.



I am not sure if this is a lump but in my opinion this is just a swollen tonsil. Do you know where your tonsils are located? I know when your tonsil gets enlarged you will most likely feel a lot of pain and have problems swallowing. The swelling can be caused by an infection and infection can be caused by bacteria, virus or fungus. The treatment usually is consisted of antibiotics and after several days your tonsils will get back to normal. However if this is not helping you should visit a doctor and see if you need to remove your tonsils for good.

I hope that this was helpful in any way.
