Hi, there is another raised area less raised area than adam's apple which is cricoid cartilage. As larynx moves upwards with swallowing, everything in relation larynx or trachea moves upwards on swallowing. The other swellings can be thyroglossal cyst or goitre. A clinical examination be an ENT will easily make the diagnosis and an ultrasound examination will corroborate the diagnosis. Regards
