Sensation of hole above laryngeal prominence near thyroid membrane. Am I being paranoid?

i could just be being paranoid but to me it feels like there is a very tiny hole above the laryngeal prominence where the thyrohyoid membrane is located, is that normal for men to have that ? or did i rip it due to coughing to hard? you would think i would sound weird or it would be really hard to breathe but ive experienced neither of those symptoms, also there has never been any pain in the area so if you could do me a favor and feel your adams apple and tell me if you feel the same thing that would be some great reassurance to let me now im fine. i need a male doctor on this one or a female who knows all about male throats, thanks.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

The thyroid cartilage, the largest and most noticeable cartilage of the larynx, protrudes forward, forming a tiny space above it, and that is normal for adult male. And you are feeling the same that is adams apple and it is normal anatomy. You can check with your family mamber or friends for examination and compare. If any variation then contact your Doctor for evaluation. Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
