ENT Specialist 's  Response
1. Is your dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing) only with solid food or with water and liquids, too?
2. Do you get choking, vomiting or coughing while swallowing?
3. Is there any change in voice or breathlessness?
4. Was the bone growth diagnosed on an X-ray? If so, what was the detailed report?
5. I recommend a Barium Swallow Study.

Hello, I m a 30 yo Caucasian female with a pea sized lump over the right side of my hyoid bone. It s been there for several years, it gets sore and difficult to swallow food at times. I can move the hyoid back and forth. I can feel it grind but the pain subsides afterwards. Feels like it s rubbing and caught on cartilage. Is this something I should be concerned about? The doctor said it was fine, but no one else I know has this issue..? They tested my thyroid and TSH levels, and all came back normal. Chem profile 2 and CBC also have come back normal. No X-Rays or anything else has been done to determine what it is. It has not grown, it s just irritating and it s a bit concerning that no one else has it, and it won t go away.

I have a lump about the size of a nickel under the skin next to my left cheek bone. It started out about the size of a pea when I first noticed it and has grown a lot over the last week or so. I had a similar lump on the back of my head about six months ago but the doctor I saw wasn t even 100% sure what it was, regardless he cut it open and squeezed out whatever was in there. This did not help as it continued to grow back numerous times. I ve heard it could be staph infection or a cyst but I would like to have an idea of what it is before I go back to the doctor here

Hi, I rolled my right ankle about 4 weeks ago. After about 2-3 weeks of rest and icing my right ankle, it felt pretty good. Good enough to start jogging again. I could walk and jog with no pain. On the forth week I tried to get back into soccer. Before the game I laced up my shoes and ankle brace then stood straight up to go for a jog. Immediately when I stood up I noticed a sharp ripping pain, across the bottom of my shin maybe near the top of the extensor tendons (if that s the right name for it, the tendon attached to the tibia), moving from the outside to the inside of my foot. I tried loosening the ankle brace but still the ripping pain continued when I stood up. I completely loosened the ankle brace and the ripping pain left and I could jog again. I decided not to play and started to examine the pain. The ripping pain only occurs when I over-extend my right leg or when I am standing/extending my leg and touch/grab my lower shin/upper ankle area. I had an X-Ray done on my lower leg/ankle but I haven t heard back from the doctor so I figured there wasn t any issues with my bones or ligaments. That leads me to believe it is a partial tear(s) in the muscle or tendon. Could you please give me a general idea if I need to have it surgically repaired or will I be able to continue resting and wait it out and eventually it will heal properly all on its own?
