Request a thyroid ultrasound.  That will tell whether or not there is a nodule on your thyroid that may be compressing your esophagus.

Have you been able to talk to your doctor about an ultrasound yet?

Hi,

You should get an ENT evaluation done, and see a gastroenterologist for your symptoms. Also, get a thyroid function test and chest xray done to rule out the other causes that could cause your symptoms.

How old are you? Since when have you noticed this lump? Do you have any other associated symptoms.

Let us know what your doctor advises.

Regards.
