    Did the doctor not suggest a follow up appointment? Call him back and insist on the first available appointment!

    What kind of Doctor is this? Acid? What tablets? Please get a referral to an ENT specialist. Good luck.

    This is extremely serious.


    Go see a specialist ASAP.


    Could be cancer.

    Please see a doctor...could be thyroid troubles..goiter perhaps or an infection of sorts!! Self diagnosis is ominous at best so seeing a doctor is paramount in discovering what is causing you this distress. Peace and good luck honey!

    You should definitely see a throat specialist.  This is not the type of lump you would want to have.

    Ask immediately for a referal to an ears, nose and throat specialist , don't waste time with a G.P

    Your right Umbriel, a referral would be needed, but I wouldn't waste ant time getting one, I speak from experience and wasted too much precious time listening to what a G.P "thought"

    Step back and see that it is foolish to look for a medical diagnosis from such an on-line forum.  Get back to the Dr. and do it as soon as possible!  ( Even if this was a service provided by DOCTORS, they couldn't tell you anything without seeing you in person, and testing, etc.)

    You need to see a different doctor. What this one suggest doesn't make any sense. He could be right but better safe than sorry........
