Lump in throat, movable, painless, smoking. Cancer?

Hello, my fiance noticed a lump, about the size of a marbal, on his throat yeasterday on the left side of his adams apple. It is movable and has no pain , how ever, he says it feels weird when i mess with it... like a weird feeling in his next. He does smoke ... i dont like it but he will not quit for me. He is only 20 years old and i am highly concerned this could be cancer ... again the lump is on left side of his adams apple.. what do you think? He will be seeing a doctor tomorrow, im very worried!

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi, most likely it will be a lymphnode which is inflammatory or a normal. Still a tobacco user should see an ENT and get the lump and throat examined. Also convince him to stop smoking as it is in case a harmful thing both for him and you. If need be, get an FNAC done if it does not go and is significant in size or increasing in size. Regards
