What causes difficulty in swallowing?

My throat is mildly uncomfortable when I swallow sometimes, more so when I yawn and it is difficult for me to raise my voice or sing high. Throat constriction seem to make it hurt. No other symptoms. Have appetite and energy. Sore throat since Oct. Going for CT Scan soon. Thankyou. Tonyg

Hello and welcome to the HealthcareMagic!

After your examination which treatment is given that is not mentioned here.

It can be acute Laryngitis like infective condition.

You can be prescribed short term steroid course like Betamethasone for 5 days.

If after examination the condition persists then a CT scan will be required.

Hope this solves your concern.

Take care
