Feeling constant pressure on throat. Tumor found in lung. Pain in collar bone, sternum. Reason?

I feel like there is someone applying constant pressure to the left side of my throat . It feels like the air is moving around something, same thing when I swallow . They have recently found a 3cm tumor in my left upper lobe of my lung but says they don t think one has anything to do with the other. What else can it be? I also feel constant pain under my left collar bone and sternum.

Hi, the pain under the left collor bone and sternum could be due to the tumour in the lungs, the pressure in the left side of the throat could be due to metastasis, or a pharyngitis on the left side.
I to my patient with such symptoms prescribe erythrocin, decongestants, analgesics, and antihistamin for relief. Thank you.
