Hi there,

Maybe you are suffering from a pharyngeal diverticulum which is an out pouching (like a small bag) from your food tube(esophagus). It could feel like a lump and cause bad breath as well. A barium swallow study of the esophagus and an endoscopy will confirm the diagnosis and it is very much treatable. You need to consult with a gastro-enterologist to do the tests first.
