Lump on throat above sternum, feels tightness and asthma symptoms, on acid reflux treatment affected by URT.

I have a pea size lump in the front of my throat, its quite low down in the hollow bit above the sternum. I don't think its related to the thyroid as it seems a bit low down. I have been having trouble with throat tightness - asthma type symptoms. My GP is currently treating me for acid reflux which he thinks is affecting my URT. But now I have felt this little lump I am worried.

Hi thanks for your question.
I would recommend you have ultrasound of the neck and lump done.
I would also recommend you have levels of t3,t4 and tsh done to rule out any thyroid problems.
Do you have heart burn after eating certain kinds of food like oranges etc.
I find this answer helpful
