Thanks for writing to us.
The lump in your throat cannot be aggravated by you touching it.
From the description it seems to be a swollen lymph
node due to the sore throat infection
you are having. Once the infection subsides, the lump will decrease in size on its own. You may need systemic antibiotics to control the active infection you are having in your throat.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
