Feeling of lump throat

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
The feeling of lump in the throat is caused by acid reflux due to gastric acid reflux disease
The other symptoms of sore throat and change in voice are possibly due to laryngopharyngeal reflux caused by gastric acid reflux.
Take an antacid like pantoprazole once daily regularly and avoid spicy food and aerated drinks.
Drink plenty of water.
Avoid tobacco and alcohol.
Wishing you a speedy recovery

Take care
Thanks and regards
