YOu have not written your age.
Still if you have chest pain and other family history of heart disease then you should not delay and see the doctor as soon as possible.
For lump in throat this could be because of the heart disease itself or due to reflux disease ie acidity but needs to be find out.and rule out heart dise4ase by Electrocardiogram or 2 d echocardiography
