It feels as though I have a tiny pill stuck in the right side of my throat midway down. I am very aware of it and it is annoying. I have noticed this now for a little more than a month, it was not so bad then, but now it is driving me nuts. I try and push on the area thinking that something is lodged in there. It does not hurt. My brother and daughter have both had thyroid cancer. could this be related. What should I do. Thanks for your help.
Hi Debideer! I would suggest you see an ENT, who will refer you for tests if necessary. Most probably it looks like tonsillitis (white areas of puss in the throat region) that often cause the feeling of having something stuck to the sides of the throat. I am positive ENT will set your mind at rest. Cheerio!
