Dr.   Praveen Tayal MD

The pain in the throat on swallowing is a worrisome symptom. It can be due to dryness of the throat or an ulcer in the area. Do consult an ENT specialist for a detailed examination.

Dr.  Prasad MD

This may be an inflammed area secondary to an infective process. If the lump is significantly large and causing pain/difficulty to swallow it needs further evaluation by an ENT surgeon.

Dr.  Prasad MD

Red spots / erythematous spots on the throat is a sign of inflammation. If your throat is sore and if you have difficulty while swallowing, this may be related to upper respiratory infection.
