Neck bulges on swallowing, severe cough. What could be the reason?

when I swallow my neck bulges to the left, has been doing this for several months, my daughter was the first to notice it. I went to the Dr. Tuesday. I am scheduled for a barium swallow tomorrow and go to see a ENT on the 20th. I really would like to know what this could be? I also have had a cough for the past few months which has gotten progressively worse.

welcome in H.C.M.

Your symptoms concerned with swelling on the side of neck during swallowing food indicates that possibly you have-

1- Reminant of bronchial cleft.

2- Sub mandibular sialoadenitis leading to swelling at the upper part of neck.

Above possibilities may be rule out by M.R.I. of neck and sub mandibular regoin. For treatment consult your ENT doctor.
