Pressure on throat, popped, hurts to swallow, difficulty breathing. Treatment?

I was recently grappling with someone who applied a little too much pressure to my throat . I felt what sounded like a pop and now it hurts to swallow . I can still speak fine and I don t have difficulty breathing . Can you guide me on how I should proceed with treatment (e.g. cold/hot packs, ibuprofen , elevation, emergency room)?

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
May be injury to cartilage of trachea or pharynx depending upon the site of pressure exerted.
In my opinion consult an E N T and get his opinion.
Good luck.
