Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Hard by touch enlargement suggests that it may be a malignant(cancerous growth). It is possible that it may be due to spread of breast cancer (metastasis) to the throat. It may also be thyroid growth. It needs to be investigated by her treating ocologist and a Genar Surgeon.
