Hi,

The commonest causes I can think about are as follows:
* Granular pharyngitis with enlarged tissues in throat like lymphoid tissures
* GERD that is gastroesophageal reflux disease makes the gastric contents to come to the throat thereby causing irritation and discomfort
* Epiglottitis
* Stress and anxiety can cause similar symptoms of GERD and feeling lump in throat

I would advise you to consult your doctor for preliminary examination and investigations. Get started on symptomatic treatment in the form of anti-inflammatory and decongestant medicines. Povidone Iodine gargles. Continue Omeprazole and Ganaton. Ganaton helps in regularization of bowel movements; Metoclopramide is the best in class. Small frequent meals. Upper GI Endoscopy along with proper visualization of pharynx may help to rule out any lumps or cancer. The final treatment will be as per your detailed history, investigation and clinical evaluation.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
