Question is related to
Pulmonologist 's  Response
Hello Mr Gaur,

Feeling something sticking inside, after a bout of vomiting suggests that, a small piece of food item could have gone into the right side of the lung. Vomiting could have made minor injury to your food pipe, which could have been the cause of your discomfort there.

You need a physician or preferably a pulmonologist to examine you. He will prescribe appropriate tests, which may include CT scan thorax or a bronchoscopy, if necessary. He can guide you how to remove the foreign body, if found within your lungs.

Cancers of the wind pipe and lungs are not common in your age group. However, take this as a reason and please stop smoking forthwith.

Hope you regain your sports-man spirit and good health soon.
