Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. Get a throat examination with a Videolaryngoscopy done . It will settle the diagnosis.

2. The feeling is usually due to irritation or swelling of the lymphoid tissue in the throat.

3. Do you have any other symptoms such as a change in the voice, breathlessness or difficulty in swallowing?

4. Upload the test result and images for further treatment options.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
