Accidentally got kicked on the throat. Pain in the throat on pressing it. Is it serious?

today I was practicing with a friend on boxing, and my friend accidentally kicked me in my throat and now when I press on it from the outside It hurts a bit and I think it is bruised but I know for sure it is very tender right now. Do you think there is a problem with it or in the future I will have throat problems? I can eat and drink fine, nothing is wrong with swallowing, it just hurts when I press on it.
