I feel a lump in my throat when swallowing and the inside of my throat is swollen on the same side. Went to ENT, he did the tube down the back of the nose to look at the throat. He sent me for an MRI, which I had yesterday. He just phoned me, said the results showed nothing particularly alarming, no tumors or masses etc but wants me to come in for further examination. My last blood tests showed my TSH and T4 were in the "normal" range, but do you think the swallowing issue could be thyroid related? I don't think it showed up as enlarged or with nodules in the MRI. Has anybody had that lump feeling without bloodwork being out of range? I know I should leave the diagnosis to him but I always like to talk to others who have been through things.
