Lump in throat sensation, burning. Using smokeless tobacco the cause?

I have recently begun to have a lump in the throat feeling. After a week or so, it began to be less of a lump feeling, and more of a slightly burning sensation. It is on the left side of my mouth. I thought you should know that I also use smokeless tobacco, usually on the side that the feeling has appeared. What could this be?

Your symptoms are typical of what is known as globus pharyngis..the patient keeps swallowing to see if the lump is gone.but there is no actual obstruction to food or fluid swallowing.First you may stop tobacco habit.the burning is due to excess acid reflux most likely and the tobacco burning your buccal mucosa.You may take medicine for acidity,Cap Rabeprazole with domperidone combination,eg.,Happi-D,1 daily on empty stomach,with a tab of Anxit 0.5mg at night.Syrup Mucaine gel 15ml thrice or twice daily will alleviate the burning sensation.continue for a few should be relieved.
