Feeling of obstruction in throat, no pain during swallowing. Cause of concern?

My husband feels like he has something stuck in his throat . It isnt food, He is thinking maybe a little peice of toothpick might be stuck but that s the only thing he can think of. When he swallows, eats bread or drinks water it doesn t hurt at all, he said it just feel like there is something in there. Should he be concerned? Should he go to the ER?

hello and welcome to HCM,

If he has no pain or breathing difficulty or no difficulty in swallowing then you have nothing to worry about

You may take lots of warm milk and normal bland food and lots of water and wait for the feeling of lump to go away in four to five days

However if the symptoms worsen and do not get relieved even after a week then you may need an ENT consult and may even be advised to undergo an upper GI endosopy to rule out any lesion in the throat

take and avoid spicy food
