Throat injury, pain on swallowing, adams apple shifted to right side, no bruising. Treatment?

Hi, on Saturday I was playing basketball and someone elbowed me in the throat . It hurt and was sore for the day. Then all of yesterday and today my throat is still sore and every time I swallow it feels like I am swallowing a marble or something large and it also feels like my adam s apple is not in the center of my throat, but rather on the right side of my throat. There is no external bruising. What could this be?

HI I have gone through your mail and I am suspecting as you are having traumatic swelling in your neck which is certainly involving the inner structures like larynx (sound box), and food passage (pyriform fossa) thus you are having pain on degulitition,you have not told about any change in voice,however you have noticed, slightly shift of your adam to one side therefore you are adviced to go for M.R.I.Neck to findout any internal injury,so that further line of treatment can be planed.Thanks.
